Trainwatching Report: Hamburg, New York - April 24th, 1999

Trainwatching Report

Pleasant Avenue - Hamburg, New York
Saturday, April 24th, 1999

     Pleasant Avenue is located off of NY State Rte. 5 in Hamburg, New York near Milepost #13 on the Chicago Line. It's really easy to get to. If your coming from Dunkirk, NY, just take NY State Rte. 5 to Wanakah, NY which is located in the Hamburg On The Lake area, come to a large intersection, with a Hogg Dairy Convenient Store to the left and a car repair shop to the right, Pleasant Ave is right next to that repair shop, just make a sharp right turn and take a quarter mile drive up the street and you're there. Also, the Wanakah Grille Restaurant is located right next to the tracks, so if your a hungry trainwatcher, Pleasant Ave is the place to be. For tracking the trains, you should be able to pick up the Bayview, New York HBD/DED from Pleasant Ave with no problems on 160.860Mhz.  I stopped up there for a couple hours and here's what I saw...
