A run on the New York Division

We started at Cortland, NY on both Sept. 20 and 21, 2008. Volunteer Railroad Association coordinators KC Smith and Chris Vitz organized a two day run over the NYS&W Syracuse Branch running a total of 160 miles. Saturday’s operation was a roundtrip from Cortland to Syracuse. Sunday’s operation was from Cortland to Binghampton and return. As an added bonus, we were able to become certified under NORAC (Northeast Operating Rules Advisory Committee) rules as railcar operators as a part of this run.
