WHEN THE RAILROADS WENT TO THE BEACH:
The role of the New York, Ontario & Western Railway and the Lehigh Valley Railroad in the
development of Sylvan Beach, New York
By John Taibi and Bruce Tracy
$49.95 (limited quantities remain)
The "Beach" referred to in the title is Sylvan Beach, NY, a small community located on the
eastern shore of Oneida Lake northeast of Syracuse, NY. At the beginning of the twentieth
century, the "Coney Island of Central New York" was the summertime destination for crowds of
fun seekers from as far away as Albany, Buffalo and Scranton. The development and eventual
success of Sylvan Beach was due to the New York & Oswego Midland (reorganized as the New York,
Ontario & Western) and, to a lesser degree, the Lehigh Valley Railroad. At the height of its
popularity, O&W and LV on-line ridership was augmented by throngs delivered by connections with
the New York Central, the West Shore, and the Central's extensive interurban system.
236 pages, 270 b&w illustrations, track plans, maps, railroadiana, and original artwork by noted artist, Carl Ohlson. Printed on 80# gloss enamel in a hardbound format with a full color dust jacket.
