In March 1880, the New York, Pennsylvania and Ohio Railroad, or NYPANO, was organized from the bankrupt Atlantic & Great Western Railroad. The road was owned by five English investors in the A&GW and J. H. Devereaux, former president of the A&GW, was elected president of the new company. Devereaux was succeeded by Jarvis M. Adams who, on March 6, 1883, leased the NYPANO to the Erie Railroad. On February 24, 1896 the NYPANO was sold under foreclosure to representatives of the Erie.
