Cuba Cheese is between Olean and Hornell. They were a shipper in the past, but I don't know if they still use rail.

Although the WNYP can use the Olean-Hornell segment, they seem to prefer having the B&P bring in freight from greater Buffalo these days.

WNY&P serves Cuba Cheese a couple times a week.

The WNY&P has been storing cars around Wellsville.

Trains rarely run to Hornell anymore.

WNY&P gets all their cars from the B&P in Salamanca.

Re B&P/WNY&P interchange at Salamanca: Where is the interchange? Old BR&P branch from East Salamanca into the city and the Erie is gone. I know Salamanca fairly well but cannot picture where and how the interchange takes place.

Interchange happens at B&P E. Sal. station with WNY&P riding into town on B&P from the Windfall connection.

While we're including the B&P in this thread, does anybody know when they are departing Salamanca for Buffalo? Still around 7:30pm M-F?

I haven't been to Riley's [PRR Depot] in East Aurora for several years. Once my dad and I caught them inbound to Buffalo at 1230pm. Pure luck on that one.

I was hoping to return to Riley's sometime soon for a late dinner if necessary.

Where and how do they serve them? Is there a siding somewhere in Cuba?
