Finished Tioga and Tompkins Counties with new photos and data.
Continued Cayuga County (only three left). The LV station in Aurora looks beautiful.

Steuben County is done, well except a new photo for Hornell. I'll get to it though. The Bath & Hammondsport station at Rheims, in the Great Western complex, has been torn down.

Finished updating Erie County with new photos and updated data. Nice day for photos. The Erie/NKP station on Babcock St is gone in Buffalo (had become a yard office). Added the Buffalo & Lake Erie traction station in Angola.

First, thank you for this great resource. Some questions or updates possibly:

-Mamaroneck is railroad owned, but leased by a private restaurant now for several years, along with office space. No railroad activity within the station
-Not sure how you feel about Columbus Ave on the NH/NYW&B. It's a ruin now
-NYW&B: a couple stations still exist that are not listed:
-Heathcote: viewtopic.php?f=91&t=91685&hilit=heathcote now a real estate office
-Quaker Ridge: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quaker_Ridge_station NYW&B Main thread: now a private residence
-Wykagl: viewtopic.php?f=91&t=67976&hilit=wykagl some shops up top, and renovation work going on
No longer exists: Third St NYW&B: viewtopic.php?f=91&t=162587&hilit=NYW%26B

Thanks again!

Are you strictly staying with stations only and not freight houses? I noticed that the NYC freight house on Exchange st in Buffalo isn't listed even though it is standing.

Passenger or freight. No one told me about it. There are plenty of freight houses on the site. Thanks.

Finished Cayuga County with new photos and updated info, including adding the West Shore station in Weedsport. It was long rumored to be around and on the Verify page. An old article about what happened to it and Cayuga Country Real Property helped find it.

Also started Onondaga County with new photos and data.

You're welcome to use this for Breesport, provided you use CC-BY-SA-5.0 and credit me as the photographer. I passed through Breesport on Friday after dose 2.

It's a weird restaurant. You have to join a club to eat there. I don't recall if it's open membership. I think so and maybe you can buy a day pass?
Metro North unstaffed and closed many stations, it seems.

I'm out ridng my bike and as I came upon the JCT of the Peanut and the WSRR outside of Akron, somebody built a "shanty. " Probably not fitting to add to the list. 😜 I took a picture anyways.

The picture is facing ESE with the WSRR on the left. The Peanut in the middle and the "Shanty " on the right. If you see the white spot in between both row's that is a buried concrete pedestal.

I eat there all the time with no membership required. Not weird at all; very nice. American/Italian style restaurant. The previous restaurant was the "Club Car". Also very nice; I don't recall membership being required.
