New York & Lake Erie Railroad
"Fall Foilage" Railfan Trip - August, 1981
by: John Baker

The WNYRHS took its first "Fall Foilage" Excursion over the New York & Lake Erie Railroad in August of 1981 from Gowanda to Salamanca and back. The weather was great as we rode behind the NY&LE's first diesel locomotive an ALCO S2 #75.

Our railfans were thrilled as the train passed through the railroads' iconic "stone arch tunnel" built in 1865 near Dayton on the way to Salamanca. Another highlight was bringing up the rear was our own NYC Caboose, #19602. Riders paid a preimum to ride in it but all felt it was well worth the price.
