Pennsylvania [Penn Central]
Mayville, New York
July 21, 1970

This view of the Pennsylvania's Oil City, Pennsylvania to Brockton, New York Chautauqua Branch is from the New York Highway 394 bridge looking west at Mayville, New York. Today the Chautauqua-Rails-To-Trails replaces the Pennsy rails, a far cry from the time when this line was a major conduit for coal from western Pennsylvania to the steel mills in South Buffalo.
