The Three Metro North Train Lines:

Metro-North has three train lines.  The New Haven Line serves the eastern portion of the county along the Long Island Sound – such as New Rochelle and Larchmont. The Harlem Line runs up the center of the county and services land-locked communities such as Scarsdale and White Plains.  The Hudson Line serves communities along the Hudson River along the western side of the county such as Tarrytown NY and Dobbs Ferry NY.

The Hudson Line:

The Hudson Line is the most scenic of the three Metro-North train lines because it hugs the Hudson River. Going home at sunset is certainly a treat if you get a window seat.   Just as an FYI – the Hudson line  was a featured venue on a 1980’s movie “Falling in Love” staring Meryl Streep and Robert De Niro.  Follow the above link to YouTube and  you can see the entire movie streamed in 10 minute segments.
