Here's another youtube I'm throwing in for nostalgia: the O&W, was a lovely country railroad. They only ran passenger service in the summer at the end. I was on route 9W (I guess that parallels the West Shore) one day when an O&W passenger train went by fast
After it was abandoned, I saw their F units stored in Croxton for months; the PRR high line went right by them. There was some problem about their ownership. In its last days, the O&W collected withholding taxes as usual, and helped run the railroad with the money. The last two "facts" are hearsay.
