Straight ahead is the former double track DL&W mainline to Buffalo. The G&W Retsof connector swings in from the right to serve the salt mine near Mt. Morris.

Genesee & Wyoming RR: Mt. Morris, NY
 
The former DL&W main in Mt. Morris. Only one bridge is left over River Road. It has a low clearance and the abutments are in rough shape.
