NYO&W Mayfield Rail Yard (Baumann’s Scrap Yard)

The New York, Ontario and Western rail yard is located in Mayfield, PA. This was the last large yard before the end of the line in Scranton. There were a few railcars still in the woods that used to be the yards. These cars included a few boxcars and some passenger coaches. The yards were also a final resting place for the remains of one of the breakers located in Carbondale or Mayfield. There was a pile of mine cars and locomotives, and we were lucky enough to save a few of the cars just before scrapping.
