THE WELLSVILLE & BUFFALO RAILROAD -- A SHORT HISTORY

Subsequent to the receivership of the Buffalo & Susquehanna Railway, which had been incorporated by the Goodyear brothers to operate in New York State, the receiver sold the railway to its bondholders on September 13, 1915.

The bondholders, in an attempt to recover their investment, sold the assets of the railway to the Susquehanna Finance Corporation. The Wellsville & Buffalo Railroad was incorporated on December 10, 1915 and leased all property used for railroad purposes that the Susquehanna Finance Corp. had received from bondholders of the Buffalo & Susquehanna Railway. They, in turn, leased themselves to the Buffalo & Susquehanna Railroad, which was still operating in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The same personnel as used by the B&S Railroad Corporation were used by the Wellsville & Buffalo.

Operating at a loss, the management closed the Wellsville & Buffalo on November 17, 1916 and it was ultimately dismantled. Although bridges were still standing as late as the early 1940’s and there were numerous rumors about potential use of the line by the New York Central and South Buffalo Railroad, nothing ever materialized.
