Birth Of The Cooperstown And Charlotte Valley Railway
Feast your eyes on some great rail-photos.
Taken in April of 1971, Chris Lord, CMO of the Current Cooperstown And Charlotte Valley Railroad Scenic Ride rode the equipment move from The DO Line in Oneonta to Cooperstown. The DO Line, which ran a small operation on a piece of the former Ulster and Delaware Railroad was forced to relocated after the State abandoned the line so they could build Insterstate 88. A recently abandoned D&H spur-line was the perfect place to set-up shop!
