LP Corp will be building a new facility that will hire more than 60 employees. The 75-acre facility will be located at the Steuben County Industrial Development Agency’s Business Park site located off of State Route 54 and is expected to open in the third quarter of 2023.

Nice to the investment in upgrading this stretch of rail is paying off.

It will be interesting to see how the B&H services the Hammondsport Industrial Track, which is basically the original B&H mainline from MP 3 to the yard limit in Bath. (The remaining track from MP 3 to the former winery site is OOS due to a washout.) ) The B&H did run their RS18u up to MP 3 when it was rehabbed, so they could run the bigger locomotives up there if they want. On the other hand, S1 #5 and S2 #14 are still on Cohocton, so they could be assigned to LP. If switchers do work LP, will one of them be based there? Or will the job be a turn from Cohocton? It will be intresting to see how this traffic develops.

Interesting indeed. Last time all the activity in this area if I remember was bringing in those jail cell concrete cubes utilizing the “passing siding “:) which was pretty neat.
Speaking of the winery I always look at the ROW along Fish Hatchery Road that is slowly reverting to Mother Nature and more quickly by the neighboring property owners to pile junk on .

Where will this be? I look on Google maps and follow the track out of Bath and don't see any areas where an industrial complex are located with rail service.

They have been ‘pushing dirt’ around at the corner of 54 and Mt WashingtonArgus Hill Rd for a bit across from Shirleys Lumber (right where the symbol 113 is )but not sure if start of I would think a much larger project .


Side note: I have read of the
Predecessor to Phillips Lighting ( just south of SHIRLEY’S being served by rail but have been unable to trace a ROW to the plant .

Any thoughts?

1952 aerial from Historic Aerials shows a spur off the main and parallel on the south side of Rd 113 continuing to the rear of the subject facility.
