Iron mining info needed: D&H Chateaugay Branch
Posted by Anonymous on Tuesday, October 19, 2004 3:24 PM
I'm interested in locating photos or other info of the rail operations at the Lyon Mountain, NY iron mines, WWI era. Served by the Chateaugay Branch of the Delaware & Hudson. I've located track plans and a number of photos of the mine buildings as well as the nearby blast furnace, but none clearly show locomotives, hoppers etc used in the operations there. I have located passenger car photos.

I've searched the web pretty thoroughly including contacting the Delaware & Hudson group on Yahoo, posting this same request on other forums without success, as well as reading Shaughnessy's D&H book, Kurdish's Railroads of the Adirondacks and several books on Adirondack mining. Much exisits on the Port Henry, NY operations and the Lake Champlain & Moriah RR thanks to the RPI website, but little about Lyon Mountain operations.

Would appreciate any advice pointing me towards any photos and any information on rail operations there. Especially interested in type of hoppers used around the 1919 era for modeling purposes.

Thanks to any D&H experts out there. (Apologies to those reading this on several forums.)
