Excellent photographic record. Made the walk a few times and yes, it is quite a trek to the Genesee River bridge from the East River Road parking area.
 
Reference the electrical cabinet approximately .25 mile west of East River Road:
 
This was the location of signals 3841 and 3842. Signal 3841 was a intermediate signal that served as the approach for Wheatland Int. MP 391.7. Signal 3842 was also a intermediate signal and was the approach for Rush Int. MP 381.9.
 
Reference what appeared to be a bridge abutment just south of the LA&L overpass:
 
A 1904 topo map shows a road crossing at that location. This may possibly explain the artifact.

Thanks very much, Paul and I am glad you enjoyed the shots. Thanks also for the great follow-up information. I wasn't exactly sure where the wayside signals were on this stretch of the LV. The "multimodalways" website has that "LV Estate" track chart from 1978, but there is a large gap missing from mile-posts 380 to 392. That sure explains a lot about why the cabinet was still there. I was hoping to find more things, but then again the rails were lifted 35 years ago!
 
Here is a link for the "Multimodalways" track-chart that contains the former LV, if anyone is interested!

Charlie:
 
You are most welcome.  
 
The info about the signals came from the Lehigh Valley Railroad Track Signal Chart - Rochester Jct. to Buffalo, NY dated 18 January 1971.
 
Found this in a trash pile at the Sayre Shops in 1983.

This is a picture of Lehigh Valley's Wyckoff Station, on the former Southern Central.  It is located on the west side of Owasco Lake, on West Lake Road, between Auburn and Moravia.  It is privately owned and being used as a lake cottage.  Some references use the name, Owasco Lake Station for this structure.

Interesting station . Was it built as two stories?
 
I had a long weekend holiday in the Finger Lakes and came across this station last weekend.

This, along with the next six pictures, is the Lehigh Valley Railroad station in the Village of Union Springs NY.  It has been restored and serves as the Village Offices.  The body of water behind the station is Cayuga Lake.  This is a view of the "street" side of the structure.

The final picture in this series was shot through the bay windows of the Agent's Office.  This space is now the Mayor's Office, talk about your office with a view!

Here is an old LV station that is still used for RR business- it is the headquarters of the Owego & Harford RR.  
 

 
 
 

 
Both photos in this post were taken by me Thursday 11/22/2012 in Owego, NY.

I was up in NY a few weeks ago and had a chance to check out the O&H. The Owego station is really nice.
 
I followed the line up to Berkshire to see the remaining depots.
Here is Flemingville NY.

I was surprised at the size of the Newark Valley station. A few tracks are still in the street. There must have been good business here at one time.
