Photos from the Upper Hudson to SW Penn Rare Mileage Trail Charter Trains

New York and Pennsylvania

Monday, May 17, through Sunday, May 23, 2010

From May 17 through May 23, 2010, the Southern Appalachia Railway Museum chartered a series of special train rides covering all of the available trackage on the Upper Hudson River Railroad, Cooperstown & Charlotte Valley Railroad, Arcade & Attica Railroad, Oil Creek & Titusville Railroad, Kiski Junction Railroad, and Southwest Pennsylvania Railroad. Many of these trips traveled across routes not normally covered by their regularly scheduled passenger excursion services. It was a unique opportunity to ride all of these lines in only one visit to the area. More photos will be added as they become available. Chris Guenzler's website at also has photos and a description of the trips.


Monday - Upper Hudson River Railroad

Using Alco #5 - the factory shop loco - we operated one of the first trips to Corinth, NY, in decades.

Tuesday - Cooperstown & Charlotte Valley Railroad

We covered the entire line to downtown Cooperstown, along with motorcar rides to Cooperstown Junction.

Wednesday - Arcade & Attica Railroad

Along with a number of photo stops, we operated a charter over most of the railroad.

Thursday - Oil Creek & Titusville Railroad

This is a unique photo opportunity - a stop on the former NYC freight line. We also covered the regular passenger route.

Friday - Kiski Junction Railroad

This is one of several photo stops made as we rode with the Kiski Junction on a freight move.

Saturday and Sunday - Southwest Pennsylvania Railroad

The rain didn't stop our plans as we spent two days covering the SWP, using the RDC belonging to the Fayette County Railroad.
