Anyone have a picture of the LV station in Weedsport. I was looking at bing maps today and the Masonic temple is right about where the LV crossed rt 31. Roof line look like larger LV depots.

Photo of it empty, derelict, about 1973 IIRC in LV Facilities V3 covering Wyoming/Buffalo divisions. Was right on top of Route 31, at most 10 feet from the shoulder and even then 31 was fairly wide.

You can spot about where it was by looking for the quonset-hut type steel building with the flat side and dock, I think there was a couple tracks there but this is cut off on the side to clear one.

Here is an aerial view from Big maps. I have not had a change to look in the LV facilities book yet.

The building in the photo posted above is not the Lehigh Valley Station. the station was removed many years ago. The building on the spot where the station was, was built in the late 1980's early 90's by the VFW there is a date on the corner stone. Here is a photo of the former LV station in Weedsport, NY. The Sign on the building was saved and is in the Cayuga Valley Model Railroad Clubs collection in Auburn, NY
