The Penfield Branch

Point of Interest

GOOGLE MAPS no longer available: With apologies, I am unable to continue showing Google Maps. Google has forced my hand by increasing their map usage fee from nothing/free to OVER $300 A MONTH for the Abandoned Rails website! This is an expense that I simply cannot afford. Rest assured I am looking at available open source alternatives, so maps should be back online soon!

I was born in Mill Run (3mi N.of Penfield). Every year there is a family reunion at Parker Dam St. Park. Yes, the "Betty Jane" Mine on Moose grade road is still active. The rail line now connects with Genesee & Wyoming tracks on the High Grade from DuBois, Pa.
