How many of the trains running to Northville were mixed freight and
passenger? What was a typical freight to Northville..2 cars, 5 cars,
or more. Also, the long passing track at Cranberry Creek must have
been for freight trains of lower standing to "go in the hole" or allow
trains moving in opposite or the same direction to pass. That was the
only long passing track between Gloversville and Northville.
Except during the Summer season, all trains to Northville were mixed.
As to the size, I guess it would depend on how much freight was going
to Northville. From the photos I've seen, most trains consisted of
two passenger cars, one combine and one coach.
