It's hard to visual the out-of-the-way village of Freeville, near Ithaca, once being a major railroad junction. Nevertheless it was such for many years. At this point, the north-south and east-west branches of the Lehigh Valley crossed at a diamond and several times daily the place was a hub-bub of activity as travelers changed trains. There was even a restaurant in the station. But it was all gone by the late 1930s and the station was demolished in 1941. From the Dick Palmer collection.
In the 1890s, particularly before railroads were required to burn oil in their locomotives in the Adirondacks during spring, summer and fall, the New York Central & Hudson River RR maintained a firefighting train. Here, it poses at Thendara station, which at the time was called "Fulton Chain." It is the same depot that today serves the Adirondack Scenic Railroad. Note the water pump atop the boiler. The Hotel Van Auken, shown at left, was later moved a short distance to the east, across the road.

was dismantled and replaced by the new loader (above)
