Re: [FJGRailroad] S & S RR
- The S&S railroad was the Saratoga & Schenectady Railroad, chartered Feb. 16, 1831 and completed in 1832. It was 22 miles long and was the second railroad in Schenectady, the first being the Mohawk and Hudson Railroad which was chartered April 11, 1826 and completed in 1831. The latter was 18.2 miles long.Malcolm Horton----- Original Message -----From: leedarshiSent: Saturday, March 02, 2002 5:01 PMTo: FJGRailroad@yahoogroups.comSubject: [FJGRailroad] S & S RRGino,What is the S & S Railroad?Sent: Wednesday, February 20, 2002 2:26 PMMalcolm,
You are talking about the line that connected the NYC Sandbank (Sunnyside) Yard
and the D & H Mohawk Yard! That line was there until the late 70's when it was
removed. It did cross Freeman's Bridge Road just below the B & M Crossing!
I didn't realize it was part of the original S & S Railroad!
