A note of thanks for posting the great articles on your site.

I have never run into "Railway Review" magazine before. It's always a
pleasant surprise to see something new.

The Kennsington-Delevan article was most informative. I didn't know they
were done together, but it makes sense as they were only about 1 mile apart.
The DL&W line was removed about 15 years ago. The Erie line now stops at the
old American Axle (Chevy) plant at East Delevan. Chessie is about ready to
remove the line. The owner is talking to the WNYRHS to put their car repair
shop there to keep activity on the line and save it.

I was born about 400 feet from the Erie line on East Delevan. The Erie E.
Delevan Depot is one that no one has a photo of. I think it lasted from 1888
to about the time of the elevation project.

Attached is a photo of Kennsington Ave before the bridge was built, about
1910. We're looking east. The Erie Depot is to the right. The crossing
shanty is DL&W. The Trolley is about to cross the Erie Black Rock Branch.
