hmmmm..then im confused.
as far as I know, the Conrail ROW in 1987 is exactly the same as the current ROW through corning..what changed in 1992?
Approaching Corning, westbound, from BigFlats, we are on the Erie..
at Gibson we switch to the DL&W, we stay on the DL&W until the DL&W Corning station, near Riverside, where we switch back to the Erie and head to Gang Mills..
sorry for the crudeness of the map..
maybe I will try to paint the ROWs over an actual map..
that would be clearer..
that routing was changed in 1992?
im not seeing it...
unless you are talking about a switchover from the *parallel* post-1950's Erie in the vicinity of riverside?
I guess im talking abotu the *historic* DL&W main, as opposed to the historic Erie main through downtown Corning..
where exactly was the Erie main re-routed in the early 50's?
did it simply parallel the DL&W north of Corning?
I guess I am considering that entire northern ROW pure DL&W..
perhaps thats what im missing..if that corridor was also Erie after 1953 or so..when the downtown Erie ROW was relocated..
