Take A Ride On the B & O RR From Galeton To Addison, NY in 1947



Galeton & Addison Passenger Train
From: jlebaron1


Take a trip back to 1947 on the Baltimore & Ohio RR. Climb aboard engine 1483 "Atlantic" at Galeton PA and ride through the hills and countryside to Addison NY.

On the way you'll deliver the mail, pick up and drop off passengers in some of the small towns along the way! You'll arrive safely at the station on Front St in Addison. The station still exists as well as the foundation to the water tower!

In 1954 this line would become the Wellsville, Galeton & Addison RR.

Walt Peasley is my grandfather!! Thank you so much for posting this video. I have a few of still photos of him at work on the B&S/B&O but the motion picture is quite a surprise. He worked for this railroad throughout his life, from 1907 to his retirement in June of 1954. He passed away in 1977 at age 93.

My Great-Grandfather Todd Evans was the brakeman on the train!

Have some really nice 8x10 black & white photos of him and my grandfather Chuck Evans while they both worked on the "B & O" thanks to my Step-dad Ron Dingle...

Thank you for sharing this Jim.
