I am trying to find out schedules, costs, routes, etc. of the Cazenovia and Canastota Railroad in 1873. Anyone have any information?
Thanks,

Might be something in either of the two books written on this line. If not there, probably not going to find it unless you get lucky and find an old timetable somewhere.


As far as the rail size goes, why not go to Cortland and look at the remaining segment? I sincerely doubt much of the rail's been changed since it was put down. Even if it has, there could be traces of older rail buried in crossings and so forth.

That would be one of the two books written about this line.

That would be wrong. Gangly Country Cousin covers the Southern Central and Auburn & Ithaca branches. It has a few pictures of Freeville, but is not exclusively about the EC&N.

Are you perhaps thinking of "Lehigh Valley Memories", by David Marcham?

Another book on the EC&N is entitled: MR CORNELL'S RAILROAD & HOW IT GREW Camden to Elmira by John Connell, 1982.
