Finger Lakes short line opens new Seneca Falls rail terminal


Finger Lakes Railway Corp. last week officially opened its new Auburn Road Rail Terminal in the Seneca Meadows Renewable Resource Park in Seneca Falls, N.Y.

Construction was recently completed on a 2,400-foot passing siding on the rail right of way and a gravel unloading yard on leased property in the park, where trucks can access the rail line. A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held Feb. 24 at the site.

The facility was built with agricultural customers in mind, Finger Lakes officials said in a press release.

The short line — which operates on 167 miles of track from its headquarters in Geneva, N.Y. — connects with CSX, Norfolk Southern Railway, Canadian Pacific and New York, Susquehanna & Western Railway.

Finger Lakes Railway's current customer base has grown to 89 active shippers.
