The Niagara & Western New York Railroad (reporting mark NIAX) was a company that operated a heritage railroad and excursion train service on the trackage of the Falls Road Railroad. Trains ran only for the 2002 season, between Lockport and Medina, New York.

Rolling stock[edit]

Three locomotives were leased from Guilford Rail System: two GE U18Bs and one EMD GP7, all of Maine Central Railroad heritage. The railroad operated three passenger cars.


Passengers boarded at the ex-NYC station in Lockport and at the Medina Railroad Museum in Medina.


Today, occasional excursions are operated between Lockport and Medina by the Medina Railroad Museum and Genesee Valley Transportation. Lockport boarding has been moved to GVT's Michigan Street Yard.
