Description The O&W (Ontario and Western Railway) originated in 1868 and lasted until 1957. It carried tourists drawn to the Livingston Manor/Roscoe, NY, USA area trout fishing, escapees from New York City's summers, and settlers hungry for the Catskills' beauty.Livingston Manor, or 'The Manor' for short, was for many years a hot spot on the O&W. In steam days the local freights originated here, heading both north and south from this central locations. It was also a helper base in steam days, a location where locomotives were added to trains to help push them up the steep grades in the area. When the diesels came the Manor became a shadow of its former self.Original postcard in my private collection, circa, 1909, scanned and edited in Photoshop.
