"north" of Port Jervis?
the southern tier is generally considered an East-West line, (regardless of compass direction in a given area)
Looks like MP 213-419 is Norfolk Southern, 213 is Binghamton, 419 is Buffalo.
and thats all the "Southern Tier Main" trackage that NS owns today..they own Buffalo to Binghamton.
East of MP 213 (Binghamton) is NYSW..so yes, different railroads.
(or does NS still technically own the route? and NYSW only leases it? im not sure on that..
I know its generally considered NYSW east of Binghamton, not NS..but im not sure of the actual ownership)
