Hillside View (N) Analouge
Hillside New York is based on a short line in New York State where most of the income is from a major production company, where logs are turned into lumber for the building industry. The short line uses diesel traction power purchased second hand by New York Central as the future of the line hangs in the balance. Some additional traffic is generated due to congestion on the more direct main lines and this just about makes the line viable.
