New York Susquehanna & Western Railway Historical Society

 

One of the best resources for information on the line! This organization maintains its own website (see listing). Nearly everything you might want to learn concerning the NYS&W is at hand through this organization. The site contains accurate roster information as well as several photo sections, items for sale, etc. Membership is only $20. Check them out.


Radio Frequencies: 160.620 161.295 160.485

This site was created to coordinate information from various sources into one location, from which, a railfan can move into other sites to gather information on the NYS&W. By combining the information listed here with that found at the other noted sites, you can look up roster information, find contacts, view photographs of much of the line’s current and past equipment, and in general, sit back and "click" back through a treasure chest full of information on the Susie-Q. This information has taken a lot of people a long time to acquire and list within these various sites. I’m a camera-toting railfan and it may be easy to snap a few photographs of the trains but the individuals that have worked hard to create these sites and deserve a round of applause! www.Susquehanna.Railfan.net simply glued them all together. We hope to improve and expand this site as more information becomes known. Feel free to contact us with additional information.
