Arcade and Attica Railroad

Summary
The Arcade and Attica Railroad is a shortline railroad that hauls freight between Arcade and North Java, New York. The railroad originally connected Arcade with Attica, however the right of way from North Java north to Attica was abandoned in 1957 due to flooding on the Tonawanda Creek. The ARA's main business is handling agricultural products (soy beans, corn, and fertilizer), lumber, dairy feed, and other commodities between Arcade and North Java. As of 2023, ARA either uses #113 solo (for small loads), or their newly acquired 1952 RS3m #114 (Formerly WNYP #406) to handle freight runs, with Centercab #113 helping with the final move to the Junction as per their operating procedure. The freight service operates as needed, typically several days a week. The ARA also runs passenger excursion trains from May to October on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Passengers can ride round trip from Arcade to Curriers Station on restored 1920s-era Boonton passenger coaches, and an open gondola,
