Speeder Trip: MA&N Utica-Lyons Falls (video)

Postby ut-1 » Sun Oct 22, 2017 5:22 am

I had the great good fortune to ride along on yesterday's speeder excursion on the Mohawk, Adirondack & Northern between Utica-Lyons Falls.

Here's the video:

Photo 4: The ten-mile section between Boonville-Lyons Falls hadn't seen a train in a month or so. We encountered 5 fallen trees here. Skilled use of a chain saw made for a quick resolution.

Photo 5: No Trespassing in Hell!!!

Photo 6: Farm bridge approx MP U 31.5. Note sign above.

As usual, good stuff. I wonder what will happen here down the road. How long has it been since there was a railroad customer in Lyons Falls?
