This short track will eventually be home to a piece of LV rolling stock... although I'm not quite sure what that will be.

This old boxcar door lies next to the trail, rusting away among the tree trunks.

The trail branching off to the right is where the branch to Honeoye Falls and Lima branched off the LV mainline.

Photo taken by me Saturday 4/2/2011 in Mendon, NY. A new pedestrian bridge was built at this location, years after the rail bridge was removed.

We walked down the trail until (a short distance from this spot) we came to the old junction where the two legs of the wye came together.

Once we got to the junction, we walked up the other leg of the wye. This was the first bridge we encountered on that leg.

The scenery along the wye was spectacular, IMO.

Scot and Ken crossing the second bridge on the eastern leg of the wye.  
 

 
Photo taken by me Saturday 4/2/2011 in Mendon, NY. We saw some signs that the eastern leg of the trail is being worked on- I look forward to seeing it after the work is completed.

Now we're looking west after getting back onto the former LV mainline bnear the junction with the eastern leg of the wye. The junction with the Rochester Branch is off in the distance.

Further west (on the other side of Plains Road), we came upon this bridge. It look like the 3rd span at left was added after the other two. if anyone has information about this bridge, please let us know!

A close look at the span on the center span of the bridge, facing west.  
 

 
Photo taken by me Saturday 4/2/2011 in Mendon, NY. I think the center had track after the other two spans were cleared of rail, but I'm not 100% sure of this.
