The Dolgeville & Salisbury Railroad
The LF&D had a separate extension that ran North to Salisbury and Irondale. It was first known as the Dolgeville & Salisbury Railroad, but then became part of the New York Central when it purchased the LF&D. In Salisbury it ran north to several lumber operations as the Jerseyfield Railroad
Here's a great shot of a train waiting at the Salisbury Center Station. The Salisbury extension opened in 1908 and was closed in 1945.
