to me, Binghamton is still a very major railroad town!
very busy (as to RR activity), and served by three railroads.
CP, NS and Susquehanna...vey far from "ghost town"..
And Sayre is busier now than it was 20 years ago.
Norfolk Southern is refurbishing the yard in fact..
I think EVERY town and city in America could be said to have less railroad activity now than it once did..but that doesnt mean they all qualify as ghost towns..For example, Chicago...but I dont think anyone would include Chicago in this thread!
sorry, but IMO those towns dont even remotely rate inclusion in this thread.

"I am referring to towns that have lost ALL
of their railroad service."
Last time I checked, (last week) Binghamton still had a lot trains rolling through it!
