The G&W Railroad was the small Western NY salt-hauling railroad that ran between Retsof, New York and Caledonia, New York, only 14.5 miles (23.3 km) long, and began in 1899. It was the first railroad in today's global G&W corporation "family" of shortlines all over the world. "G&W Orange", that began on the G&W railroad, can today be seen on railroads all over the world.
