Despite the name, Wellsboro & Corning, the WCOR doesnt actually run to Corning, only Gang Mills.
What cars, where, on google maps are you referring to?

I know it interchanges in Gang Mills but I was told two different stories about the NYC track the rest of the way into Corning - as an NS customer and as an WCOR customer.

It shows the W&C heading south from Gang Mills, as expected, then also having a spur running into Corning, south of and separate from the Southern Tier main (which I as a non-expert at first glance would assume to be the NYC Corning branch), and then a big "NS" label at the end of the branch in Corning.
