    • Well, I’ll put that trail on our bucket list. This years trip, that took us all the way up to southern Nebraska was that enjoyable that we’re surely planning more. And heading more to the east is one of the options.

  1. It is beautiful. I’m trying to envision it… Was it narrow gauge, or have they allowed the woods to grow up next to where the tracks would have been? I can’t quite imagine a train going through there, although it may be wider than it appears. I try so hard not to be envious of northern fall colors, but it does test me from time to time.

    • I think it was a full-size track, because they used to haul anthracite from Pennsylvania through here up to Lake Ontario — it’s just had 40 or 50 years to get overgrown.
      I know the RR was still in business in 1964, because that’s when two locomotives ran into each other, a couple of miles north. There’s still pieces of metal and stuff in the woods
