Trackage Rights/Burning off Mileage

Post by Statkowski » Sun Jul 14, 2019 10:47 am

The DL&W (and E-L) granted the L&HR rights between Andover and Port Morris, N.J. As L&HR mileage on DL&W/E-L accrued, one can assume that the DL&W/E-L built up mileage they could operate over the L&HR, possibly to Warwick, N.Y.

Could the DL&W/E-L burn off their mileage all the way to Maybrook, N.Y.?
