I'm standing on top of the Dayton "tunnel."  
 
These tracks lead into Dayton Junction.

New York & Lake Erie RR Dayton, NY
 
This was the original Erie RR line to Dunkirk.  
 
The tracks behind me go to Cattaraugus. They are out of service due to a washout.

New York & Lake Erie RR Dayton, NY
 
This is a connection between the original Erie RR Dunkirk line and the Erie RR Buffalo-Jamestown line.  
 
It was put in by the NY&LE in the early 1980s to connect their two lines.  
 
This is the view from Rt 353 in Dayton.  
 
The line to Cattaraugus has not been operated since 2009. (?)  
 
A washout has the line out of service.  
 
Two NS boxcars are stranded in Cattaraugus.

A siding is to the left of the main here.  
 
I think there's a flatcar on the siding. It's hard to see.

I don't know if this industry uses rail.  
 
The spur looks to be in good shape.
