Hi Matthew,
 
I believe a tree service company used to work out of the property, but has since moved.  I will do some research and see if I can find out who the current owner is and advise.

The Weatherly Shops walls are still intact but due to liability, the Town had to dismantle the roof and they sold all the steel that was in the yard. We were hoping to house my grandfather's LVRR memorabilia in the shops but now is housed in the dispatchers office next door which features LVRR and local Weatherly history.  
 
The station and the paint shop still exist in great shape.  
 
Also, the old Beaver Meadows Freight station from the Beaver Meadows Railroad still exists...

That's a shame. I was hoping more would be done with it.

I made a rare visit to the Sayre Pa area last year and paid a visit to the Meshoppen Pa station. Good and sturdy - glad to see it still standing.

Thank you, sir. Surviving LV roundhouses are a rarity.

Nice photo of the Meshoppen station......thanks NEFAN!
 
Last Tuesday (4/9), I walked some of the LV Rail-Trail from the East River Rd crossing west to the Genesee River (which was a hell of a lot longer than I bargained for!). I wanted to get photos of the remaining Genesee River bridge and anything else I could happen upon. Here we go.
 
As I walked toward the West, I checked the sides of the embankments just to see if there were any odds and ends as the vegetation has yet to come in. I peeked at the South side of the fill around a quarter of a mile from East River Road and here is what I think might be a box used to house trackside signals. If there wasn't a wayside signal in this area, perhaps it was the box used for road crossing flashers, although this is a ways down from the crossing. Someone will know better than I. Anyway, here is that photo.

As I walked further down the trail, on the same South side of the fill, somehow someone managed to get what looked like a late 1970s or early 1980s red Chevy Impala down to the bottom of the embankment, and was upside-down. I'm sure there is a story behind THAT one. I declined to photograph that.
 
At any rate, quite a ways further down is a bridge that crosses over the current Livionia, Avon and Lakeville Railroad (former Erie Rochester Branch).
 
Looking to the East toward East River Rd
 

 
And looking to the North toward Rochester
 

 
Looking to the South. I see what looks to be an abutment of some kind with a barricade at the top. Was there maybe an access road of some kind that ran South of the ROW for C&S workers? That's the only reason I can think of for there to be a bridge there of some kind. Here's the shot--sorry it's somewhat dark.

Just a hair further West there is another bridge, which I am guessing is over a small outlet into the Genesee River. We are looking toward the East....

As one walks further West, we come to a huge support abutment for what was the eastern-most approach to the bridge over the Genesee. As you can see, the trail begins to take a significant drop.

More stone-work which helped support the east-side approach.

Here is what is left of the bridge. To cross to the other side, one has to walk several feet under the top of the structure where the trains crossed, of course.
 

 
South side of the bridge where the pole-line connected.....
 

 
It turned out to be a beautiful day for a walk--hope all enjoyed the mini-tour.
