Tree blew down across the tracks. Train ran South from Avon to Lakeville on Thur. morning, dropped about a dozen cars in the siding at Papermill Road. Swapped the 425 for the 418 at Lakeville and 420 - 418 went North out of Lakeville with 15 cars.

Yesterday, July 31 I saw the 420 & 425 crossing Routes 5&20 in Avon. It looks like they switched Barilla and then headed south. Glad to see 425 back in action.

As information, the B&H and the WNYP will host a "rare mileage" excursion using Bennett Levin's special train this weekend (Aug. 5-6). The train - consisting of Levin's ex-PRR E-8's and a consist of PV's - originates at Hoboken and will move west over NJT, NYSW and NS to the B&H at Painted Post. It will overnight at Bath, where the 80 or so guests will have dinner at the Great Western winery. The train will set out early on Saturday morning to return to Painted Post for the run to Hornell, Olean and Jamestown. A brief ceremony is planned at the restored Erie passenger depot in Jamestown. The passengers will then travel across the WNYP to Meadville for an overnight stop. On Sunday morning, there will be a rare mileage trip to Franklin on the WNYP Oil City Branch, returning to Meadville for the run over NS west to Youngstown. The aim of the train is to cover as much of the remaining Erie main line as possible ( with a little ex-DL&W thrown in for good measure.

Just was hoping someone might be able to give a current summary of normal days/times for WNYP ops on the Buffalo line and on the Erie east to Hornell?

Was in touch with Olean last week about that very thing regarding Olean to Hornell. It's currently on an as needed basis. She said it's been two cars or a few more once a week. No set day. There you have it. On the Buffalo side, someone else will have to chime for the OIBU.
Proficient on the Southern Tier Line, The former PRR Elmira Branch, A little LV, A lot of EL, And of course, the Corning Secondary. Someone always knows more than me. Remember the Binghamton yardmaster that routinely said in a high voice, "No! No! No! That's not what I told you to do!"?

WOW! I guess traffic east of Olean has taken a big hit lately... maybe I'm out of the loop but last I knew it was several times a week with 10-15 cars being pretty routine- what happened to drop it to 2 or so cars 1X a week?

Thanks K4!

Mike, thanks for your post. I was beginning to think that the LAL had closed up shop. :-)

Is the use of 72 on the daytime Lakevilel Swr a regular occurrence? And sinceI've heard the corn syrup traffic is down or nonexistent right now, is the Lakeville swr. a reliable bet?

Also don't see or hear much about 20, does it ever get out to stretch it's legs?

LAL 20 still needs wheels.

You will still find 72 doing the Lakeville chores if not 418.
