Middletown, NY - Summer, 2011 - O&W Station photos
These were all taken on July 7, 2011, in Middletown, New York.
The NYO&W Station still stands at Wickham Ave (Route 211) and Low Avenue.
Built in 1892, it last saw passenger service in 1953, and its namesake railroad,
the New York, Ontario & Western itself was abandoned in the spring of 1957.
After a major fire in 2004 (affecting mostly the western end), nothing has been done with it,
but plans are in play now for soon becoming a local medical services building.
A few views from the track side of the station.
At the far west end, looking through a window, you can see some of the heavier damage.
The west end, where the roof had burned away.
Just further west, the former "Adams Express" building, now put to another use.
The single track, still in use by the Norfolk Southern, looking west.
Close-up of the rails next to the station, Lackawanna 90# rails which appear to be dated 1931.
And finally, two photos from the front (Low Ave.) side of the station.
