The Erie Railroad (reporting mark ERIE) was a railroad that operated in the northeastern United States,
originally connecting New York City with Lake Erie.
Its mainline route proved influential in the development and economic growth of the Southern Tier, including
cities such as Binghamton and Elmira, New York.
On October 17, 1960, the Erie merged with the former rival Delaware, Lackawanna & Western Railroad to form
the Erie Lackawanna Railroad. It became part of Conrail in 1976. In 1983, Erie remnants became part of New
Jersey Transit rail operations, including its Main Line. Today, most of the former Erie Railroad routes are
operated by Norfolk Southern Railway.
