Welcome to Erie Railroad Historical Website

A website providing a historical collection of pictures, links and information about the Erie Railroad with an emphasis on the Dunkirk Branch and the 100 year Centennial Celebration in 1951.

The Dunkirk Branch was the final stretch on the original mainline from Salamanca to Dunkirk, NY, the terminus of the Erie Railroad in 1851. Thank you to C. Hall for providing some great color photos of the last years of operation on the Dunkirk Branch as shown in our website header.
