On the way back to Franklin, we spot this house with a switch?. I would have liked to have talked to the homeowner but nobody was home. The house is just back of the ROW.

Looking at the DL&W Franklin Branch. We cannot proceed any further than here as it is private property  
 
An interesting note. As we go back to the NYS&W/L&HR tracks, the homes above to the left of the rails have stairs leading down to the rails. Why would they ever do this? Seems a little dangerous to me

Once again the DL&W ROW starts to appear and will cross with the L&HR just ahead
