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.

Stations[edit]

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

Today[edit]

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.
