In PA, one of my favorite stations - Weatherly Pa. The town keeps it pristine.

Glad to post. This is an interesting thread. I don't get to upstate NY very  often, so those are a favorite of mine.

NEFAN,
 
I was told the Weatherly Shops were in the process of being, or have been, demolished.  I haven't been through the area in a while.  Do you have any insight on this?

Like Charlie's A&I photo, this contribution isn't a structure- it's an active segment of the former LV from North Waverly to Ithaca:

I'll have a couple more goodies to share in the coming days.

Surviving structures- some of them are built (and owned) by former LV customers who still ship by rail. One such customer is Matthews & Fields Lumber- check them out in this thread:

It should also be noted the LA&L local also passed another former LV customer during that run- the former Agway(?) in Henrietta, NY.

I haven't been able to confirm that. Very sad if true.

Have not been to Sayre since the fall of 2010. Surprised to note that the caboose has been relocated but yet again.
 
Several years ago it was located right where it now is, but was moved to where the ramp for the Lockhart Street Pedestrian Overpass had been. Recall they had a "Help Pull The Caboose" fund raiser when it was moved.
 
Odd that it has been placed back to where it had been years ago. Anyone know the story on the latest relocation?
 
Thanks for the photos and updates.

The movement of the caboose is due to different owners of the station over the years.
The condensed version:
 
1. The 1980's, Private owners bought the station from Conrail..The Valley Railroad Museum opened in the station, but the museum did not own the building, they rented their space from the owners..The caboose was obtained by the Museum at that time, (about 1985) and placed next to the station.
 
2. Late 1980's and early 1990's.
The station owners had a restaurant, then a furniture store on the 1st floor of the station, The railroad museum at first was on the 1st floor, but then moved upstairs and took up one-half of the 2nd floor..The owners decided, about 1992, that they needed the *entire* building for their furniture store, and they kicked out the museum..The museum moved out, opened a short-lived new museum on Desmond street, but then folded..The entire collection of the museum was given to Bradford County, who stored it away in Towanda for a about a decade...The caboose was given by the museum, to Sayre..
Since Sayre didnt own the station, or the property it stood on, they had to move their caboose down the street to Borough-owned property, (the old area where the walkbridge once stood)..There the caboose sat for most of the 1990's and 00's..
 
3. The furniture store failed, and the station sat empty from about 1995 to 2005..(dates are approximate, perhaps not exact, but close..)
 
About 2005, Sayre took ownership of the station..The Sayre Historical Society was allowed to move into the station, and form a new museum..The collection of the original "Valley Railroad Museum" was returned from Towanda, and the museum opened about 2005..
 
The Sayre-owned caboose could then return to its original place alongside the now Sayre-owned station! A display track was built, and the caboose moved back over a few years ago...(its not in the exact position it was, the first time it was up closer to the station, but its approximately the same, alongside the station)

High Point Mills a locally owned and operated producer of lawn care products under the "Turf Line" brand. Unclear as to history but as long as I have been around, never an Agway, and doubt it ever was. Most likely metamorphosed from a local grain/coal dealer in the early 1900's.

The following posts are of the Lehigh Valley Roundhouse in Auburn, NY.  The first is taken from the south side of the structure, followed by all others in a clockwise fashion as viewed from above.  The roundhouse is privating owned, but apparently not in use at this time.
