B&H Rail completes line renovation in New York
The Steuben County Industrial Development Agency (IDA) and B&H Rail Corp. plan to hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony tomorrow in Bath, N.Y., to mark the completion of a $909,000 rail line renovation project.
The line will provide rail service to the agency's industrial park for the first time since 1996, making the park more competitive for future economic development activities, IDA officials said in a ceremony announcement.
B&H Rail plans to feature its 1878 passenger car at the event. The car will be pulled by the first official train to travel on the newly renovated line.
Owned by Livonia, Avon & Lakeville Railroad Corp., B&H Rail operates between Cohocton and Painted Post, N.Y., and interchanges with Norfolk Southern Railway.
