Looking For These Lehigh Valley Station Photos

Postby NYCUticaSyracuse81 » Sat Oct 05, 2013 4:16 pm

I'm a really big fan of the Elmira, Cortland & Northern branch of the Lehigh Valley and interested in any old photos of the Lehigh between Canastota and Camden, NY (abandoned Aug. 1938), especially of the stations at Camden, McConnellsville, and Vienna NY. Thanks-81

Dont see a lot of LV photos from that remote end of the system..
but there is a book! that's probably your best-bet for photos and info:

http://www.amazon.com/When-The-Railroad ... 0965136442

It's about the NYO&W and the LV at Sylvan Beach.
(and someone here might be able to dig up some photos to post! give it some time..)

Thaks S.C.. I have read the Sylvan Beach book by Taibi and Marcham's "Ups and Downs Of A Rural Line." They both have some photos of the stations. They are great photos, but from what I remember rather small and there only seemed to be one of each. I though there may be a railroad enthusiast out there that had a collection posted somewhere online. Perhaps there are other photos not posted in the books out there? Either way, if you come across any please keep me in mind. Thanks again-81

Photos of both the McConnellsville and Camden stations are published in the book MR CORNELL'S RAILROAD & HOW IT GREW Camden to Elmira by John Connell.

Which was published in 1982 and will run you around $30 when one turns up on eBay.

One will be for sale at Batavia on Oct. 13th -

Thanks for the info guys! I've never heard of the John Connell book. Sounds like it will be something I will enjoy reading!
