Snapshot - July 2014

B&H train is departing Cohocton for Painted Post, NY. during the fall of 2012.
This months snapshot is a group of photos I took that kind of document a visit by Don and I to two of the three railroads under the umbrella of the Livonia, Avon & Lakeville Ry. The interesting part about the three railroads is they operate totally with Alco's...enjoy the link below to the RR's site....they have lots of nice photo's there also...George Dutka

 Livonia, Avon & Lakeville Railroad LAL shortline railroad freight service south of Rochester, NY

This is the system map found on the railroad's web page. One can see all three railroads are in a close proximity to each other...making railfanning not all that difficult.
 Stopping by the B&H Ry. Cohocton, NY. engine house on the way to Strasburg, Pa.....there was not much happening. We did get lucky on our way home a few days later on our second stop in town.
We had just come off the freeway in Cohocton, NY when we saw the B&H Ry. switching an industry near town.
As Don and I arrived, no. 418 was just being tied down for the day at Lakeville, NY. This line operates from Lakeville to Rochester, NY.

  1. George, If you call the New York and Pennsylvania RR office in Olean in advance, they will give you permission to walk around the engine facilities... I think they are still doing this for railfans. This would be a great railroad to model. I railfanned this line when the Erie Lackawanna was still in existence. Keep those post coming, better than reading all of that bad news in the paper !!!! JOHN HAJNOSZ
