by Chris Guenzler

After the wonderful trip on the Arcade and Attica Railroad, we headed west on NY 39 and in Springville we made our first stop.





The old Buffalo & Susquehanna Railroad Station in Springville.





The Springville Surprise was PCC 4434 on display there. We continued west to our next stop in Gowanda. We asked a very friendly policeman who gave excellent directions to our next stop.
