Local Railway Gets State Grant

Otsego County’s Leatherstocking Railway Historical Society is one of 19 organzations sharing in a $25 million state grant to fund railroad infrastructure improvements.

$120,000 will go to the Society to refurbish the tracks between Cooperstown and Portlandville.

The funding was awarded through the Passenger and Freight Rail Assistance Program.

Governor Cuomo said the grants will help strengthen New York’s infrastructure, attract new investments, and foster economic growth in communities in every corner of the state.
