I'd love to see the LA&L do some excursions, even if they are diesel powered. What about the railroad that runs out of Canandaigua? They used to do a Santa train every December.
LA&L hasnt run excursions since the 60's..
they had two steamers at one point.
bit sure why they dont anymore..they probably just dont want the hassle.
Finger Lakes Railway runs out of Canandaigua.
they run excursions quite a bit, on lots of different segments of their line.
(north, south, east and west out of Geneva)
they just aquired the former Ontario Central, and are going to start some excursions out of Victor, NY this year too.
When the "upstate steamers" were doing a steamup at Sonnenburg last year, FGLK ran a special train to Canandaigua for the train show:
Out in Medina, they have two genuine New York Central E-units! /DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/shocked.gif
havent been on the road yet, but should be this year.
I havent seen the E-units up close and personal yet, but I hope to soon..
