Lackawanna depot at Onativia, N.Y.

Train at Mount Washington

As shown in this view, trains once ran all the way to the foot of Mount Washington in New Hampshire. Built by the Boston, Concord & Montreal Railroad, the Mt.Washington Branch was completed in 1876 and leased to the Boston & Maine Railroad in 1895. 1932. Located in the White Mountains, the branch was about six miles long and traveled from Fabyans to the base of the Mount Washington Cog Railway. A few brooks were crossed on wooden bridges. Passenger service on this branch was discontinued on August 31, 1931 and the line was abandoned in 1932.

The 'Huckleberry Railroad'

Catskill & Tannersville No. 1.
Looks like they used milk instead of water in the engine. 

This was a 3-foot narrow gauge line called “The Huckelberry” that ran from Kaaterskill to Tannersville, in the Catskill Mountains, 5.2 miles long. Abandoned in 1919.

Altoona & Beech Creek Railroad

This is a post-card view of a train on the three-foot narrow gauge Altoona & Beech Creek Railroad about 1908, which operated during the late 19th and early 20th century. 

It carried passenger traffic up from the vicinity of Altoona to Wopsononock and coal and timber down from Wopsononock and Doughty to Altoona. Originally constructed to develop coal mines and resort traffic atop the Allegheny Plateau, it became involved in a complicated and ultimately unsuccessful scheme to break the Pennsylvania Railroad's control over the Clearfield coal region. Never very profitable, it went through several reorganizations, the last in 1913. It was converted to standard gauge in 1916, but was unprofitable and abandoned in 1919. It was eventually about 12 miles long.
