Roscoe and DeSoto are two dobermanns belonging to Bill Sykes in the 1988 film Oliver and Company. The original Dukes of Hazzard boys were played by Tom Wopat (Luke Duke, left) and John Schneider (Bo Duke, right). In the new film, which is released in the US on 5 August and in the UK on 26 August, Luke Duke is played by Jackass actor Johnny Knoxville (left), while Bo is played by American Pie star Seann William Scott (right). Luke and Bo's sidekick Daisy Duke was played by brunette Catherine Bach in the original TV series, which ran from 1979 to 1985. In the Hollywood version, Daisy Duke is played by blonde-haired singer and actress Jessica Simpson.
The Duke brothers had a running battle with corrupt town leader Jefferson Davis 'Boss' Hogg (right) and his half-wit sidekick Sheriff Roscoe P Coltrane (left). Luke and Bo often found themselves in trouble with Sheriff Roscoe P Coltrane, played by James Best.
Actor M C Gainey plays Sheriff Roscoe P Coltrane - with his basset hound Flash - in the remake. The New York, Ontario & Western struggled for most of its life to stay solvent, while serving the sparsely populated areas of New York's Catskill Moutain region.
The New York, Ontario & Western was a charming 500-odd mile regional railroad operating from a connection with the West Shore at Weehawken, New Jersey, through the mountains to the Lake Ontario port of Oswego, New York. While traffic picked up during World War II, it became clear that the railroad could not survive as a bridge carrier alone. A number of the Class W 2-8-0s had their twin single air pumps moved to the pilot deck, to avoid having to install stokers on locomotives with 90 tons or more on the drivers.
The last stream locomotives purchased by the O&W were the Class Y-2 4-8-2s from Alco in 1929, numbers 451-460. In an attempt to stem branch line passenger train operating losses the O&W looked to the Sykes “Seagull” motor car No.


The O&W never invested in any proper diesel road-switchers, relying instead on NW-2 yard switchers and footboard-equipped F-3’s in the 500 series for its local freight power. Far up on the Northern Division, the town of Munnsville (Munns on the railroad) was served by a classic board-and-batten station.
Roscoe’s station was a typical O&W family design, with several other stations nearby being built to variations on this theme.
The watercourses of the Beaverkill and Willomemoc came together just north of the depot in Roscoe, New York, at a place called “Junction Pool.” This spot became known as one of the best trout fishing locations in the Northeast. One of the O&W’s classic wooden cabooses rolls by Livingston Manor station in the last years of the line’s life. The handsome cousins lived with their Uncle Jesse and shorts-wearing cousin Daisy on a farm in Hazzard County. Branches to Utica, Scranton, Port Jervis, and Kingston kept the line afloat with coal and bridge traffic, while vacationers flocked to the O&W's passenger trains to stay at the famous Catskill resorts.
Built at the same time as the New York Central's L2-C Mohawks, these engines even had shop order numbers within the sequence assigned the NYC engines. Locomotive 503 is on the local freight today as it moves some cars around for delivery in Livingston Manor.
With the demise of passenger service years earlier the station become just a freight shed with an office for the agent and had not seen fresh paint in many years. One of the road’s FT sets gingerly crosses the now single-tracked trestle with a northbound freight. The railroad followed a twisting route with steep grades and few sources of on-line traffic.
With improved roads and the decline of the Catskill resorts after World War II, NYO&W passenger traffic fello off dramatically.
The port traffic at Oswego never materialized, but coal from Scranton kept the railroad busy through the 1920s.


It was the first American railroad to be abandoned in its entirety, with the majority of its remote right of way returning to nature.
The experiment was wholly unsatisfactory, since the car was noisy, unreliable and inhospitable. With the steady decline of coal in the 1930s, the railroad entered bankruptcy in 1937, from which it would never emerge. On a cold day in late fall, we see 325 switching cars at Roscoe with its snowplow installed.
The Y-2 were not only the last steam engines purchased by the O&W, but also the last engines ever fully paid for before the line filed Bankruptcy.
Soon assigned to the branch serving Kingston, the results there were no better and the car was retired after 14 years of service. The O&W dieselized as early as 1941 with the arrival of GE 44-tonner switchers and later EMD FT cab units.
