The Southern Tier Line is a very interesting route in all aspects. This, of course, does not exclude its history. If this site is supposed to be devoted to the Southern Tier, it is only fitting to include its history in great detail. I have finally gathered enough information to make the "History Division" of the Southern Tier possible. Currently, the information I have is just a hodge-podge of various artifacts, maps, documents, and the sort. There is no special order in which the following hyperlinks are listed either. Most of this information I got from Erie and E-L sites, and proper credit is given. Enjoy!
The following information I received from George Elwood's private web page dedicated to the Erie-Lackawanna Railway. He truly did a wonderful job at it and it deserves a visit from any true railfan: http://www.dnaco.net/~gelwood/el.html.
