Genesee Valley Terminal Railroad

In 1882, the Buffalo, New York, and Philadelphia Railroad also constructed another branch line, the Genesee Valley Terminal Railroad.  It extended from the main line Genesee Valley Canal Railroad at the rail yards on Scottsville Road (present day Fire Training Academy in Chili in Monroe County) two miles north to the New York Central & Hudson River Railroad at Lincoln Park in Gates, allowing trains to continue on to the New York Central depot in Rochester. 

Passengers needed to use the New York Central station as the Pennsylvania had not completed their own depot at this time.  All three companies, the Genesee Valley Canal Railroad, Rochester, New York and Pennsylvania Railroad Company, and Genesee Valley Terminal Railroad, together became known as the Rochester Branch of the Buffalo, New York & Philadelphia Railway.
