Niagara Junction

Electric freight motor with train

Niagara Junction

Although it was built by the Niagara Falls Power Co. in the 1890’s, 11-mile switching road Niagara Junction used steam locomotives at first. Electrification, with 660-volt D.C. catenary and steeplecabs, came in 1913. New General Electric motors arrived in 1952 (that’s one at right, in October ’67), by which time the road was owned by NYC, Erie, and Lehigh Valley. NJ became part of Conrail in 1976, but electric operations lasted until ’79. J. V. Claflin photo, J. David Ingles collection
