The only private trolley operation in New York State is the trolley at New York Museum of Transportation, which had its first test run off live overhead wire in 2001, and has operated
regularly since 2008.
I believe the last electric freight in NYS was SBK in Brooklyn into the 1970s?

There is also a private trolley operation at TMNY in Kingston, but uses either diesel or generator power.
Electrification is in the long term plan.
