 Overview
 Description
A small bunch of rail cars on parallel tracks just south of the village of Victor. The railroad was originally part of the Auburn and Rochester Railroad. It merged with Auburn and Syracuse Railroad in 1850 to create the Rochester and Syracuse Railroad. This soon merged with New York Central. The Auburn segment closed in the 80s I believe, similar to the Lehigh Valley Line west of Victor. The currently active parts of the Lehigh Valley Line built a spur to this spot to use as a storage and maintenance area. Some cars stay, others get moved. Keep an eye out! The tracks are overgrown so the cars don't move too often.
