CNYrailroadnut: West Shore-Oneida Railway Company and Much More About Railroads

We ran into a great (new?)  WebSite all about all the Central New York that we cover. Check out the CNYrailroadnut

We only checked out a small portion of the site, but will be covering more in the future.

We were trying to find out about West Shore Railroad abandonments and found something on a railnet forum that brought us to this new WebSite
