I think that route going up and over took you off the O&W and on to the
NYS&W, through Blakeley past Riverside Jct and over the NYS&W high
bridge over the Lackawanna River to Pompey.

I have an O&W Dispatchers Sheet that shows the DL&W movements off the
NYS&W -- twice a day, with as many as 74 cars from Northwest . . .

The O&W Camelbacks followed the north side of the river, and ducked
under the NYS&W where it crossed the Lackawanna River . . .

The Storrrs Branch of the DL&W did not phyically connect to the rest of
the DL&W -- and was reached via the NYS&W.
