On Saturday, September 17th, the Ontario & Western Railway Historical Society will present a PowerPoint presentation on Norwich starting at 1:00 pm at the Chenango County Historical Society’s Museum, 45 Rexford Street, Norwich. This presentation is open to the public!

Norwich had several important functions on the New York Ontario and Western Railway. The Northern Division repair shops were located in Norwich, where repairs to rolling stock and locomotives were performed up until the railroad’s demise in 1957. Locomotives were serviced and trains were broken up, made up and dispatched from the large yard. Several major industries were served in and about Norwich. The railroad also maintained an active interchange with the Lackawanna Railroad, and for a short time even a branch existed which originated here.

The CCHS and the O&W Railway Historical Society encourages those who attend to plan extra time to tour the CCHS Museum, as well as the Bullthistle Model Railroad Society and the Northeast Classic Car Museum.
