Oh NEFAN, I have to get up pretty early in the morning to stump you, LOL! Yes, Newark Valley, NY on the Auburn Branch.

I was up that way a few years back and I remember the mill building to the left.

That had been the G.L.F. (Agway) mill. Bliss Bros. was to the right, out of the frame.

The area looks very nice these days with a restored depot, caboose (behind the depot) and no weeds between the tracks.

Here is a photo of the LVRR caboose behind the Newark Valley station as mentioned above in the previous GTL.
 
The cab is tied down on what was the station track which at one time had both a east and west (ETT direction) switch.

There is also another track in the street which I imagine served Bliss Bros? What was their business? Newark Valley must have been a good generator of carloads for the LV at one time.

Bliss was a large flour and feed mill. Another customer in Newark Valley that generated a fair amount of traffic was a ladder factory. They received raw lumber and shipped finished ladders of all types. Back in 2010 there was a large pipe yard served by O&H right where the factory had been.

Just to jump back, yes, that's Allentown station, looking RR west. This is a 1951 Allentown Morning Call photo.
