Passing OG
Title:  Passing OG
Description:  Train 167 rolls past McMaster St, where the DLW Ithaca Branch crossed the Erie, at OG tower, now long removed, as the DLW line came out in 1965, though the connection from the Lackawanna main across the river had been moved here in the consolidation of facilities in 1959. The DLW line also crossed the Lehigh Valley(todays Owego & Harford) just north of here. This part of Owego was a busy place 65 years ago.
