Jim Loudon  58 pages softcover

Read the untold story of what might have been - a scenic railroad nestled in the hills along the west side of Otsego Lake, offering vistas of Mount Wellington and Glimmerglass- when it connected with the Fort Plain & Richfield Springs it would have opened up a major trunk line between the Susquehanna and Mohawk Valleys.  The C&N promoters, the Smith family of Springfield Center, had a grand vision but found themselves at odds with Cooperstown's most prominent citizens who did not want to engage the village in another railroad experiment after enduring the famous "Railroad War" of the 1890's. Includes a map of sections that were completed and photos of existing remains, plus the complete history of the Fort Plains and Richfield Springs.
