Very little of the LV survived on Day 1 of CR in Upstate NY. The Rochester and Lima branches were an exception. The Lima branch was operated until the mid 1980's, and then abandoned. The local would usually run about 3 days a week and was powered for a while by ex EL 1205, now CR 5935. CR also used RS-11's & RS-32's as power, and finally towards the end of the branch lines life, GP-35's and U-25B's. 5935 is at the Sibley Road crossing in Mendon.
