Metro-North Railroad's Beacon Line is a non-revenue line connecting the railroad's three revenue lines east of the Hudson River. West to east, they are the Hudson Line, Harlem Line, and the Danbury Branch of the New Haven Line. It was purchased by Metro-North in 1995 from Maybrook Properties, a subsidiary of the Housatonic Railroad, to preserve it for future use, for training, and equipment moves. Maybrook Properties had purchased the line from Conrail after Conrail left the Danbury, Connecticut, freight market.

“One line typed twenty years ago
can be blazed on a wall in spraypaint
to glorify art as detachment
or torture of those we
did not love but also
did not want to kill.”
—Adrienne Rich (b. 1929)
“It was a remarkable kind of light to steer for,daylight seen through a vista in the forest,but visible as far as an ordinary beacon at night.”
