Arcade and Attica Featured in New Book

More Info on This Book: Arcade and Attica Railroad

In 1881, a narrow-gauge railroad was built in southwestern New York, from Attica to Arcade. Later rebuilt to standard gauge, concerned local farmers, merchants and other residents raised enough money to purchase the railroad and formed the Arcade and Attica Railroad.

In a new book by Arcadia Publishing, over 200 vintage photographs highlight the history of a railroad that, faced with declining revenues, launched steam-powered passenger service in 1962.

Springirth hopes the book will “focus attention on this railroad whose management and employees have made the extra effort to preserve its history that has meant so much to the communities it has served in southwestern Wyoming County, New York.”

Highlights of Arcade and Attica Railroad:
• Features never before seen vintage photographs from both public and private collections
• Documents the history of the oldest continuously operating railroad under the same corporate identity in New York State
• Relives the excitement of the railroads past freight and passenger service
• Pays tribute to the management and employees of the railroad for their extra effort to preserve history
