Buffalo, Pittsburgh and Western Railroad

History

On January 22, 1881 the Pittsburgh, Titusville & Buffalo Railway, the Buffalo, Pittsburgh and Western Railway, the Salamanca, Bradford and Allegheny River Railroad, the Salamanca, Bradford and Allegheny River Railroad Company of New York, and the Titusville and Oil City Railway merged to form the new Buffalo, Pittsburgh and Western Railroad Company.

Almost two years later, on February 14, 1883, the Buffalo, Pittsburgh and Western merged with the Buffalo, New York and Philadelphia Railway, the Olean and Salamanca Railroad, and the Oil City and Chicago Railroad Company (of April, 1882) to form the Buffalo, New York and Philadelphia Railroad.  This was reorganized in late 1887 as the Western New York and Pennsylvania Railroad.
