The Mohawk, Adirondack and Northern Railroad (MHWA) is a class 3 short line operating over trackage of the former New York Central Railroad in Central and Northern New York. Specifically, Oneida, Jefferson, Lewis, and St. Lawrence counties. It operates over 3 divisions and interchanges with both CSX and New York, Susquehanna & Western in Utica and again with CSX in Carthage.

The Southern division operates about 45 miles of track from Utica through Holland Patent, Remsen, Boonville, and terminating in Lyons Falls with the Adirondack Scenic Railroad excercising trackage rights over the line from Utica to Remsen.

The Southern division also includes a 7-mile spur into Rome, NY off of the CSX mainline which is accessed with trackage rights for 13 miles over CSX from the Utica interchange to the Rome spur junction.

The Northern division is about 15 miles from the CSX interchange in Carthage southeast to Lowville which includes a 46 mile spur from Lowville to Newton Falls which fell into disuse after the closure of a paper mill in Newton Falls.

Mohawk, Adirondack & Northern is a susidiary of Genesee Valley Transportation.
