    Do you have any pictures of LVRR’s Pattenburg Passenger & Freight Depots? I have never been able to locate any documentation. Pictures of the Bellwood Park Station/Amusement Park to the west are plentiful and at least one picture of the Jutland Depot & Signal Tower to the east exist. The only remnants of the Pattenburg depot area are the stone wall supports of the 1st water tower (locally called the ‘Chisel House), the concrete bases of the 2nd water tower, and a residence on main street that was supposedly the station master’s home. I have never even seen historical photos of any of these structures.

    I am looking for pictures of the LV train station that was on the upper part of Bennett St, Luzerne, PA. It was part of the Bowman’s Creek line. I believe it was torn down in early to mid 70s and senior high rise built in its place.

      I wish I had a picture of it , too ! I grew up in Luzerne in the 60’s ! My Mom was born & raised in Luzerne . We lived in a double block at 777 Bennett St my grandmother lived on the other side . My grandfather built that house , back in the 1920 ‘s ! Anyway , I remember that train station clearly , because my friend and I were walking home from school , and we decided to cut through the train station , and there was tar by the tracks ! Needless to say , I had to leave my ” black Beatle boots “, in the tar ! LOL !

        Mr. Palmer-That’s great that you have photos of these stations! I would really like to see whatever you have. I replied yesterday with my email address, but it appears to have been deleted for some reason. My email is cnyrailroadnut at

    If you’re going to post pictures, do so at at least 300 dpi so they can be copied. That includes ones I have sent you.

    Growing up in Canandaigua and running around the county, one of our stops was of course the old Manchester station. At the time we were going there, it was pretty much a restuarant only (more like a diner). The name which it went by was “Alices Resuarant” taken from the song of the same name.

    I have seen the yard in Manchester go from a very busy and active freight terminal to a wast land. I took my great grand daughter for a ride on the Finger Lakes Halloween tourfrom Victor and we went through the old Manchester yard….I was rather surprised at the loss of the track and abilities. My wifes only question was “They just leave it all laying like that?” I could only say yes after watching the yard at Canandiagua being abandoned by NYC and PRR through the 60’s and 70’s.

    Thanks for preserving some of the old memories for our children.

    I am trying to find out the location of LVRR passenger station(s) in Newark NJ, if any, and years they operated. Any help much appreciated.

    Hi. I have an item from my great grandfather that has both ‘LVRR’ and ‘EM 99’ on it and I’d love to know what it is as I’m just getting into rails and their history.
    Thank you.

    My Grandfather Edward Campbell was an engineer on the LVRR from the 1930’s to the late 1950″s. I’m not sure where he traveled everyday but I remember he picked me up from 3rd grade at Our Lady Of Victories grammer School on Ege Ave. in Jersey City and took me too Pennsylvania on a steam engine. It had to be about 1955 and it is my fondest memory of both my Grandfather and the railroad. My Grandfather lied to the Nuns that day to get me out of school.
    I don’t think my Mom knew(ha-ha) but she never said anything to me(ever) she knew!!

    Great memories of the railroad.
    Ps my dad also worked for the LVRR from the end of WW2 to the 1960’s ferrying rail cars to NYC. Great memories I hope to share with my grandchildren soon.
