Lowville & Beaver River (LBR)

The Lowville and Beaver River Railroad (LBR) is a short-line railroad owned by Genesee Valley Transportation (GVT) of Batavia, New York. It was started in 1906 and currently runs from an interchange with the Mohawk, Adirondack and Northern Railroad (MHWA – another GVT subsidiary) to Croghan, NY with the line being virtually out-of-service since the mid-1990s. Talks are being conducted to eventually turn its right-of-way into a combined rail/trail/tourist railroad operation. The #1923 steam locomotive and the Alco 2-8-0 (pieces of its original motive power roster) have been preserved as part of the Steamtown, USA National Historic Site right here in Scranton, Pa..

Lowville & Beaver River is a susidiary of Genesee Valley Transportation.
