How to get Nevis by train
Note: The train schedule for the Metro-North Hudson line (East of Hudson) is available on-line. Select trains leaving from either Grand Central or Marble Hill, and arriving at Ardsley-on-Hudson station.
From Columbia University:
Take the Subway #1 train north to 225th street. As you walk down the stairs from the elevated platform, note the location of the Metro-North Marble Hill train station about one block to the west. The northbound train stops there hourly about 40 minutes after the hour during non-rush hours. Take the train north to the Ardsley-on-Hudson station and follow the directions below.
Once you're at Ardsley-on-Hudson...
Take the left-hand road uphill. The first paved driveway on your left (about 200 yards from the station) leads to the Nevis grounds. Keep going uphill. The first building on the right you'll see is the Cyclotron Building, now used by Astrophysics and RARAF. The next building you'll see on the right as you follow the winding road uphill is the Electronics Shop. The last building on the left is the Particle Physics Research Building; the machine shop is on the lower floor and the offices are on the upper floor. If you go to the top of hill, the carriage house (shipping, receiving, and supplies) is on the right as you face the parking lot.
