Is DLWR Still Active?

Postby 161pw165 » Mon Dec 13, 2010 3:17 pm

Hi All,
I'm new to this particular forum and was wondering if the Depew, Lancaster, & Western is still active? If so, do they operate regularly and what are their connection points?
Thanks in advance for any/all information....

DLWR in Lancaster is pretty slow...with at the most one trip a week-not that exciting. Batavia however, is booming with M-W-Th operation, leaving the enginehouse at about 0830hrs or so.

That must have been an extra. The main crew is almost always on the FRR on Tuesdays, but my guess is that they either changed the schedule in the past week, or more likely, they ran the DLWR and FRR simultaneously with different crews.
