On March 29, 1957 the New York, Ontario & Western Railway Co. was closed down and, for the most part, abandoned. The following is a copy of the March 1957 embargo notice that was issued in conjunction with the closing of the O&W.

   I would like to thank Ken Hojnacki and Kodtrak Kountry for the use of this material.
