TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 13TH, 6:00 P.M. HISTORY OF THE NY&P RAILROAD PRESENTED BY DAVID CASTANO

The New York and Pennsylvania Railroad, affectionately called the “NIP”, was a 57-mile shortline railroad that spanned the border region from Ceres to Canisteo from 1895 to 1935. The origins and heart of the NYP was the Oswayo Valley. 

Unlike many shortlines of that era that only served coal or lumber interests, the NYP freighted a wide variety of goods and products in and out of its rail line.

Hear about the heroics of such brave engineers as Carl Flohr and Fred Kemp. Learn the true story of the NYP’s wreck with an airplane, and a trolley car war fought in the streets of Shinglehouse. Take an historical ride back to an era when the shrill steam whistle and the chuff of engines echoed through The Oswayo’s towns, villages, & farmlands.

Join us on February 13th at 6 p.m. at the Oswayo Valley Library for a program presented by David Castano, Potter County’s historian. Please stop by or call the library at 814-697-6691 to register.

This program is free and open to the public.
