The New York, Susquehanna and Western Railway postcard (reporting mark NYSW), also known as the Susie-Q, or simply the Susquehanna, is a Class II American freight railway operating over 500 miles (800 km) of track in the northeastern states of New York, Pennsylvania and New Jersey.[1] It was formed in 1881 from the merger of several smaller railroads.[2] Passenger service, including commuter service from Northern New Jersey to New York City, was offered until 1966.The railroad was purchased by the Delaware Otsego Corporation in 1980,[3] and became a regional player during the 1980s in the intermodal freight transport business. This saw the railroad hauling containers including Sealand and Hanjin units as part of a land bridge with Delaware and Hudson and CSX railroads. After losing the intermodal traffic in the late 1990s to CSX and Norfolk Southern (as a result of the Conrail breakup), the freight operations continue into the 21st Century with contracts to haul commercial waste, corn syrup, and other materials.

In 1925 NYS&W operated 136 miles of road (not including 87 WB&E miles) and 272 miles of track; in 1944 it showed 120 route-miles and in 1967, 71.
