Great video. Amazing the changes since the railroad folded.

Very nice! Thanks for sharing.

One question: there's a paved trail before the DL&W/NYSW trackage comes onto the NYO&W right of way. Is that a "rail trail" officially or is it something else?

I will soon be doing a sequel to this video beginning at the end point of the video featured above and running to Clinton, perhaps even Deansboro.

If anyone has any photos pertaining to this section, please send me a private message. I'd like to include as many photos as possible in the second video.

Thanks!

John
