 The Pennsylvania Railroad played an important role in Nunda for many years. The depot was an important spot in the village, and local folks and businesses depended upon the "Pennsy" for mail, products, and transportation.

Heading west from Nunda, the tracks went through Oakland, passed through the old Deep Cut of the Genesee Valley Canal and then followed the old canal bed through Letchworth Park. We also have posted a 1912 map which shows the route of the railroad in the Nunda area.

The image below show the railroad building found in Oakland. You can also view images of the Deep Cut "station" by going to the Letchworth Park History website. They come from the collection of Jim Gelser, whose father, William H. Gelser was a longtime railroad employee who worked at the deep cut from 1919 to 1923. The descriptions which accompany the images were provided by Jim.

The Nunda Historical Society thanks member Jim Gelser for sharing this image with us.

 Railroad building in Oakland, "could have been used for a freight building or track maintainance."
