I was gathering information about abandoned rr thru town ofBYron and happened upon your site. Gathering info about when rail was functioning thru the town.
Did this line run by the airport off Genesee? If I am correct this was part of the West Shore branch. In the 1970s Penn Central days, there was 1 local that served a Loblaws destribution warehouse, then went east via a connection branch. I was surprised but not shocked to the abandonment of the line. The ROW would have been an ideal route for light rail.
I think this was the line years ago where some kids sent a locomotive rolling slow from down in the Ebenezer Yard in West Seneca and the engine ran with no lights thru crossings and ended up at end of track near Oakfield NY.
