Here are 2 pictures from NYC. The first is the power substation across the street from Penn Station. It was built to match the no longer standing station. The bottom is on the wall in Penn Station in the Hilton Passageway that leads from the 1,2,3 trains. Its partially hidden by the light, but its clear what it says.

Nine days ago, I went down to the Keystone State with Scot and Ken (fellow rf.net members). One of our stops was this former PRR Elmira branch station:

There were other Pennsy artifacts, as well.
 
Former switch mechanism:
 

 
Retaining wall next to the former ROW:  
 

 
We were thinking this was the remnants of a platform that unloaded coal. Can anyone confirm it?  
 

 
Another retaining wall behind the station:

My old stomping grounds, right down the road from where I grew up. The old Pennsy Chautauqua Branch. Barely made it into Conrail before being abandoned. Interesting note that two passenger lines also connected in this tiny town. The Chautauqua Traction Co and the JW&NW both ran through this town on their way over the hill to Westfield, with JW&NW having a roundhouse there. Amazing amount of railroad history in this area.
