NYS&W Railway Northern Division Pictorial

This webpage is a pictorial of the Syracuse & Utica branches, today operated by the New York, Susquehanna, and Western Railway Corp.  Originally operated by the Delaware, Lackawanna & Western and later Erie Lackawanna, the lines were sold in 1983 by Conrail to the Delaware Otsego Corp. which today operates it as the Northern Division of the NYS&W.  The Utica side between Greene and Sherburne was heavily damaged by flooding in 2006.  The Utica Branch is currently is use between Utica and Sangerfield- service to Sherburne is very rare and the line betweeen Chenango Forks and Sherburne may be abandoned.  The rails remain in place for now and some hope remains- stay tuned.
