Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Incorporated in 1917, the Arcade & Attica Railroad is a shortline railroad that hauls freight between Arcade, New York and North Java, New York. The railroad originally connected Arcade with Attica, New York, however the right of way from North Java north to Attica was abandoned in 1957 due to flooding on the Tonawanda Creek. The principal business of the ARA is handling agricultural products, lumber, dairy feed, and other commodities between Arcade and North Java. They continue to use their GE 65-ton as primary freight power, and sometimes will double-head it with the GE 44-ton if they need to move more than 4 cars at once. Days of freight operation remain Monday, Wednesday, Friday, starting its day at 7:00am at the Arcade engine shop. From there, they will run up to the Norfolk Southern interchange, and then out to serve the handful of customers left on the line.
