New York O&W Highview Station for sale
Posted by Mister Mikado on Wednesday, November 07, 2018 3:47 PM

Something made me re-visit (online) my childhood summer stomping grounds in Highview, New York today, and lo and behold the decrepit wreck of a station I used to explore back then is for sale, luxuriously remodeled.  Check out the interior!  The tunnel entrance is not shown.  It's walking distance, a few hundred feet away, hidden in a mountain cleft.  I believe the entrance portal said 1884.  Don't know if the 4 acres includes the right of way, but on a hot sticky summer day the owner of this gem property can stroll down there and shiver just like I did when I was ten.  Grab it before it's gone! (LOL) -Rob

(update--VR tour shows tunnel--guess it's included)

Well worth taking the time for the V-tour, very nicely restored.  The entrance portal is near the end of the tour.  Now, can anyone share the up-coming winner numbers for PowerBall?
