Old Conrail Lockhaven Division

Are there any customers left on the old Conrail Lockhaven Division on
the Lake Ontario shoreline where they have to deal with snow avalanches?

I believe you're referring to the Falls Road Branch that used to run from Rochester through Brockport and Lockport to Niagara Falls NY. Conrail abandoned the line east of Brockport and Genesee Valley Transportation's Falls Road Railroad acquired the remainder of the line between Lockport (CSX connection) and Brockport. GVT serves 2 transload facilities on the Falls Road (Lockport and Medina) and the Western New York Energy, LLC ethanol plant east of Medina.

Hopefully somebody can speak to if CSX and Falls Road RR have had to cope with major snow recently.
