Well, the search function really worked this time. I was walking the gorge of the Stony Brook State park and came upon the concrete pylons. I have never researched this area and therefore never new this was here. I assumed that they were for a RR bridge but they were oddly placed. I assumed it was one bridge but as I climbed the stairs I figured it out to be two bridges. Two main concrete abutments remain on the west side. There were several stone cut support blocks for each bridge going into the gorge. I spotted one or two on the other side. This just seemed an odd location.
When I left the lower gorge area, I drove up to the camp area. I saw two street signs. One said something like Shawmut St. Another sign said Pittsburg Highway. I started to wonder if this was the PS&N. So when I got home, I started looking things up. Google mapped first and only could see the main abutment in the middle of the gorge and a dirt streak in the farmers field that indicates something was there. Then I went to open street maps. Nothing listed there. I went to ACME Mapper 2 and clicked on toppo. Bingo...."old railroad grade." Click on this link where I put the markers. It went whacko on me and they are all screwed up but you can follow the ROW all the way from Rt36[dirt streak] to the 390. http://mapper.acme.com/?ll=42.51102,-77 ... ville%20NY

I then searched this forum and came upon this post so I was happy to see what it was. It is heavily forested with trees about 50+ years old. Neat to find.
