Finally, a builders photo of the #115. Strangely, I can't find a construction number for this loco. #115 was built by Baldwin in 1913 for the S&NY and at one point during her service was rebuilt in the Lehigh Valley shops in Sayre, PA, approximately 20 miles north of the road's northern terminus in Towanda.

   Just saw this thread. And it brought back a memory from thirty five years ago. So please forgive an old man's memory process.
 
   When I first moved to Ft. Myers, Fl. in 1971, I got involved in a model railroad group in Cape Coral, Fl. One of the men involved was Joe Gohl. I'm not sure if I'm spelling his name correctly. He was an older man at that time already. He passed away about twenty or more years ago.  Anyway, it turns out that Joe's grandfather was the president of the S&NY plus the Tionesta Valley. Even saw pictures of him as a very young child with his grandfather on the back end of a S&NY caboose.
 
   Small world, is'nt it!!
 
   Take care,

Number 113 at the end of the line-undated photo taken in West Williamsport (Newberry). This locomotive was built by Baldwin in 1907, construction number 32,130 and scrapped in 1934. According to Kaseman's book, it is estimated that she ran approximately 1.5 MILLION miles in service on the S&NY.

Yet another view of the #119 (formerly H&BTM #35) in an undated (obviously before the demise of the S&NY in May 1942)  photograph, no location given.  
 
Won this on eBay in early February but only received the photo today (April 2nd). I'd given up on seeing it, thought it had been devoured by postal gremlins.

Thus far, most of my posts on this line have been of locomotives. Here are some of the depots on the line, starting with Laquin.

Here's the depot in Townada that was shared with the Lehigh Valley's State Line & Sullivan branch. Postally used, postmarked Burlington, PA on July 15, 1912.

Here's a second view of the joint depot in Towanda-I have no idea if this is a S&NY or LV train.

End of the line...Tionesta Valley #20 on July 13, 1935.  
 
This loco was built for the Susquehanna & New York by Schenectady in 1904, C/N 29,516. It was originally numbered 108. Sold to the Tionesta Valley in 1926 when that narrow gauge line needed a standard gauge switcher for the dual gauge trackage around the mill in Sheffield, PA.

Here's a member of the locomotive roster of the S&NY that hasn't been featured yet: 2-8-0 #114, photographed in Towanda. The 114 was built by Baldwin in 1907, C/N 32123. According to Kaseman's book, this loco was outfitted with a Lehigh Valley tender in the late 1930's. This photo, which came with no other identification aside from the fact that it was taken in Towanda, predates that tender swap.

New to group. Interested in the S&NY.
 
Hi
I've a very strong interest in logging industry history. I've been a rabid logging railroad history buff since the age of ten when my father purchased Thomas T. Taber III's Muncy Valley Life Line and Ghost Towns of North Central Pa. in 1972. My family has a cabin in Davidson Township, Sullivan County not far from the W&NB roadbed. I've been coming to the area since I was born in 1962. I'm fascinated with the history of the region's turn of the century industries. My main interest is the Central Penna Lumber Co. and it's Susquehanna and New York Railroad. My favorite Class I railroad is the late Lehigh Valley.
Now my wife and I have a cabin in Bradford County not far from New Albany. I'm trying to come up with some type of history tour I can give family and friends that come to visit, possibly bring along various history books and photos for a then and now type perspective.
I'm toying with the idea of following the route used to haul logs from the CPL's Mehoopany Creek tract to the mill at Laquin in the early twenties. Starting from Becker Brook along the Mehoopany in Wyoming County to Ricketts on the Lycoming/Sullivan Co's border to Laquin in Bradford Co.
Following this route would keep me relatively close to and centered on the cabin. It would also allow me to touch on other industries and locations along the State Line & Sullivan and the Susquehanna & New York right of ways.
 
PS Aug 1st is Lopez Old Home Day. There is a new book on the history of Lopez and the author will be there signing. (I have no affiliation to anyone involved with this book)loggingloco

S&NY Towanda turn table, LV coaling tower locations
 
« Reply #38 on: Jul 15th, 2010, 12:49pm »
Quick-Jump   Reply w/Quote   Modify

Does anyone know exactly where the S&NY's Towanda yard trackage and turn table was located?  
  I've been to the Washington St. stations but did not have reference photos with me. Trying to go by my memory of the photos I'm thinking it may be by the Williams(?) propane yard.
  Has anyone tried finding old ICC valuation maps of the area. I've done internet searches and I always come up with nothing.
  I've also tried figuring out and asking around town to see if anyone knows where the LV coaling tower was. It shows up in the background in a few S&NY yard photos.  
Thanks,
John

I was in Towanda last week and noticed the mural on the fence along Main St has been painted over. This was the mural that depicted historical items and places in Towanda including a S&NY train.
