Trying to find the Lehigh Valley RR museum in Manchester, NY

Back in June I took a quick weekend trip to Manchester, NY to visit the Lehigh Valley Railroad Historical Society. I assumed (but didn’t verify) that it would have some rolling stock similar to the site I visited a few years back in Pennsylvania.

Well, lessons learned. The historical society has a building that appears to be a former freight depot but not only was it not open, there is no rolling stock or anything related to railroads other than the building itself. But all was not lost.

On the way into Manchester, there’s a lone caboose sitting by itself in a small park. It’s fully restored and the park itself is maintained by volunteers, including former LVRR employees. So here’s some photos I took with my Lubitel on Fuji Velvia film. The Velvia really brings out the Lehigh Valley color.
