Pennsylvania RR Rochester Branch: Mt. Morris, NY
 
Location where the Pennsylvania RR Rochester Branch crossed the once double track DL&W Buffalo mainline.  
 
The PRR was abandoned through here in 1963 and is now a rail trail called the Greenway.
 
Hikers do not cross the tracks here.
 
There is a detour down onto River Road to bypass this active track now operated by the Genesee & Wyoming.

Pennsylvania RR Rochester Branch: Houghton, NY
 
A culvert between Houghton and Caneadea was washed out a long time ago. The Green rail trail detours on the side of Rt 19 here.
 
You can see the remains of the pipe in the stream bed.

The Greenway going away from the washed out of culvert. I don't know if this is the official Greenway or maybe just private property?

PRR Rochester Branch: Black Creek, NY
 
The exPRR Rochester Branch is now The Greenway rail trail. The trail was overgrown until the trail was brush cut recently. It's really opened up the trail.
