The section of the Rutland I model is the former Ogdensburg Sub or Ogdensburg and Lake Champlain (OLC). The only surviving section of this line is the 20 mile run from Norwood NY to Ogdensburg NY, which is owned by the Ogdensburg Bridge and Port Authority and run by Rutland successor road, Vermont Railway System.
With operations occurring three times a week, it is hard to catch this elusive railroad in action. That was until yesterday when I photographed VTR’s 802 (a GP-18) hauling a single car from the port at Ogdensburg to go back to Norwood. The following photos were taken at the grade crossing on Route 37 on the outskirts of Ogdensburg.
