Western New York & Pennsylvania Railroad

Meadville-Olean line

The western end of the Western New York & Pennsylvania Railroad's 190 mile east-west mainline begins at its operations center in Olean, New York, and travels west across the state line to a connection with the Norfolk Southern's Youngstown line at Meadville, Pennsylvania. Portions of the line include the Erie Railroad's historic broad gauge route that dates back to 1852. Most of the WNY&P system is leased from Norfolk Southern, but the 42 mile segment from Corry to Meadville is owned outright by the shortline. Along this portion of the mainline, the WYNY&P maintains interchange with the Buffalo & Pittsburgh's Erie line at Corry, PA and its Buffalo line at Salamanca, NY.
