Cazenovia residents gather at the railroad turntable and original wall just off the Fairchild Hill trail on the old Syracuse and Chenango Valley Railroad to listen to John Taibi and Jim Georges during a CPF-sponsored Walk N’ Talk on Saturday, April 14.
Cazenovia On the beautiful morning of Saturday, April 14, John Taibi and Jim Georges, local railroad historians and authors, guided a historic tour of the Cazenovia station and turntable of the old Syracuse and Chenango Valley Railroad sponsored by the Cazenovia Preservation Foundation.
Through their writings, visitors were able to review old photos of the station, turntable and railroad line in order to compare past to present.
Train enthusiasts were lead along the Fairchild Hill Trail where Taibi and Georges portrayed the happenings and the importance of this old rail system.
The CPF walk series continues throughout the summer. The next event will be a “Full Moon Hike,” from 8 to 9:30 p.m. May 5 at the Stone Quarry Hill Art Park.
