So a combined operation would require action and cooperation between the two counties. NY&LE is out of service beyong Conewango. Former junction with Erie main at Waterboro no longer exists and hasn't since formation of Conrail which was more than a few years ago. HTGAgreed regarding the respective counties involved. That being said, there have been occasions where two county industrial development agencies have worked together to hire a single operator for a section of track. The Ontario Midland is/was an example of that cooperation.
