INTRODUCTION
Milk operations were a small but integral part of the Lackawanna Railroad. Those operations are today as far and as distant as the Railroad itself. At the peak of the milk business in 1930, the Lackawanna had more than three dozen creameries located along its tracks. As time reduced them in numbers, it also has reduced our ability to reestablish a crystal clear view of the operations. This book will not attempt to delve deeply into the individual creamery operations of each town along the Lackawanna. One could do an in depth thesis for a Master's degree on the history of dairy products and milk operations in the towns served by the Lackawanna and its predecessors, especially in central New York and northern Pennsylvania. That is not what this book is all about. I do not pretend to push this book as the complete guide to milk operations as time may have passed us by on that. Some trains may have done more than what is stated and not every change in schedule or operation can be documented, but it is a reassembling of facts that are known. This book will examine the Lackawanna's milk car roster and then look at the milk that came off the Syracuse and Utica Branches and the forwarding of that milk east. It is augmented towards operations at the end of Steam and during the Diesel years. For modeling purposes, there is an emphasis on actual car numbers and total cars in operation.
