New York Ontario and Western Railroad Makes Its Final Run-Historical CNY

via Flikr Creative Commons user Russ Nelson

The New York Ontario and Western railroad once criss-crossed upstate New York from the Delaware Valley to the Lake Ontario port city of Oswego.  Lines ran to Utica and Rome and south to the coal rich mountains of northeast Pennsylvania.

It was on March 29 of 1957 that this railroad made it’s final run.  The distinction is that the NYO&W was the first major railroad in the nation to be completely abandoned.
