O&W Abutment at Cadosia, NY

This stone abutment supported the west end of the trestle at Cadosia, NY that marked the beginning of the O&W's Scranton Division, which was constructed between 1889 and 1890 to tap into the rich Pennsylvania coalfields. The Scranton Division was double-tracked in the early 1900's to help the O&W cope with the unrelenting flood of black diamonds. This abutment dates from the original construction, as evidenced by the fact that it only supported a single track.
