New York State is the Empire State and hosts railroads and rail operations across the entire state; from Long Island and New York City to Buffalo and north through the Adirondacks to the border with Canada.

The purpose of this web site is to organize information, especially web information, for all railroads, rail organizations and interesting rail locations within the state.  Links below.

This web has been created as an enjoyable project to organize and display my many railroad photographs while also organizing a valuable resource for anyone interested in the railroads  of New York State.
