The Lowville and Beaver River Railroad

Photos By Gene Shatrowsky


The Lowville And Beaver River Railroad was one of the longest operating Short Lines in America, opening in 1906.  The Genesse Valley Transportation Company, owners of the MA&N purchased the line and ran it until Wednesday, January 24, 2007. Here is LBR GE-44-tonner 1951 in Lowville on 12/12/98. The LBR named their engines by the year they were built. This engine was from the former Skaneateles Shortline in the Fingerlakes Region of NY.
