Well, hard to believe, it's 60 years ago today that the O&W shut down. I never saw it in operation, but spent quite a few days in Orangeburg climbing through the cabooses and HT-1 that used to be there. Ghosts of the past, just slowly fading away.....

Thanks for noting the 60th Anniversary.

Sad day for O&W fans.

TRAINS had quite a circa '57 piece that simply concluded that the Old Woman never had a chance.

Sadly, she did not. But those of us, like Cactus Jack and I, who reside in her former empire. love her for what she did to boost prosperity in our area while she could, and the legacy she left behind. She's still talked about and missed in the hills and villages of Chenango County, New York.
