The Susquehanna River Rail-Trail will be the descendant of a once-vibrant rail link that connected Albany and Binghamton to the coal fields of Pennsylvania. The line was completed in December of 1871 and entered service the following June. It continued in operation until the mid 1980s.

Today the abandoned road bed has an opportunity to serve the citizens of the community in new and exciting ways. It stands poised to become a premier hiking, biking, horseback riding, and snowmobiling trail. But this will only happen if members of the community work to support the project.

To gain some perspective on the history and potential of the trail, let's take a virtual hike from Nineveh Junction to the Pennsylvannia state line, and from the 1880's to the present day. Please be patient as the photos load. It will be worth the wait.

You can see an interesting historical view of Nineveh Junction and the Central Hotel here.

This 420-foot truss bridge, built in 1908, is eligible for inclusion in the State and National Registers of Historic Places.

The Centervillage bridge is listed on the National & State register of historic places.
