New York - Ontario & Western Railway Museum

Roscoe, NY - The Roscoe O&W Railway Museum was established under the charter of the Ontario & Western Railway Historical Society in 1984 and was first housed in a former Erie Railroad caboose. The first O&W Railway festival was held in August of that year and has become an annual event. In 1986 the museum board members approved the purchase of the Wood garage for the purpose of expansion. A new corporation, the Roscoe NYO&W Railway Association was formed to purchase, operate, and maintain the museum.

The museum complex consists of the O&W refurbished caboose on the site of the Roscoe Station, the original trout weather vane and train signal, the Cooks Falls and Roscoe watchman's shanties, The Beaverkill Trout Car and the O&W station motif building. The museum now contains O&W artifacts and memorabilia, other railroadiana, and local history displays showing the impact of the O&W on community life, hunting, fishing, farming, tourism and local industries.
