In it's hayday, the line down Schuyler St. was the DL&W main line in and out of Utica. It was kept pretty busy with 2 regularly scheduled trains to and from Binghamton (later Scranton). There were switching assignments for Richfield Springs, New Hartford, Sangerfield etc that kept the rails from getting rusty. While not a main line like the NYC was through Utica, it kept us kids pretty busy running from our house to the corner to see the trains come through. The speed limit on Schuyler St. was either 7 or 8 mph for the trains.
