This page has a lot of interesting info on the early operations of the TV&C.
nydepot had told me about the long trestle outside of Cuba and here it is comfirmed:
Oil Echo, Richburg, Monday, April 17, 1882
Work on the T.V. & C. R.R. between Cuba and Arcade is being rapidly pushed forward. President R.G. Taylor says that by the 1st of August trains will be running from Attica to Cuba. The work of constructing this road has been under the immediate supervision of Supt .Kirkpatrick, long and favorably known as supervisor of the Buffalo division of the N.Y. L. E. & W. railway and has been rapidly and exceptionably well done. The long trestle and bridge just out of Cuba is now completed and the iron laid across it. it is nearly half a mile in length and from 25 to 50 feet in height.
The charge of this work was entrusted to J.H. Osborne - formerly of Erie, and is one of the most substantial structures of the kind in the state.
I wonder if a picture exists? Probably not since the railroad only operated to Cuba for 4 years.
