Excerpted from a history of Schuyler County.
At one time there were three railroads serving Schuyler County: "the Elmira, Jefferson and Canandaigua Railroad, along the west shore of the lake; the Chemung Railroad, which connected this road at Watkins with Elmira, both now parts of the Erie system; and perhaps one should add the Seneca Steam Navigation Company, of 1870, which had at various times a half dozen steamers on the lake, some of them nearly 200 feet long." (http://www.hopefarm.com/schuylny.htm) Only one remains active today.
