Need schematic of Last Days of Niagara Juntion Rwy

Post by Steampunk »

I have been many places by foot along the railroad lines here in NF but they say that NJ operated 44 miles of Electric Railroads...OK maybe I dont see it because I have a untrained eye but I have yet to notice any Catanary or Poles with Wires Cut. Is there a schematic of Electric Track that NYC and then Conrail ran in the Niagara Region?

It's actually very difficult to "what used to be" in terms of catenary and other electrical apparatus
on the former Niagara Junction for any type of rail historian, be it novice or newbie. I will keep on the
lookout as far as schematics, track diagrams or whatever.

Welcome to the forums! :-D
