    Thanks for posting this. As a Syracuse University alum, I was especially interested in the description of the “Salt City”, whose main N-S drag is Salina Street (US 11). The main E-W drag is Erie Boulevard, built on top of the Erie Canal when the railroad put it out of business.

    The SU mascot used to be the Saltine Warrior until that became politically incorrect.

    Interesting to see that much of the main line from Cleveland to Chicago was there, but not yet affiliated with the NYC. Also the Michigan Central mainline went across the state, but very little of the north/south trackage existed.
