If I recall correctly, WAG (Wellsville, Addison & Galeton) was nicknamed the "Sole Leather Line" because of the tanneries along that railroad.

Here is a link to a short book about the WAG (please note the reservation of copyright notice):

Hide processors were also in New York, specifically, the Endicott Johnson Shoe Company that stretched along the ERIE and DL&W tracks from Binghamton through Johnson City and Endicott (about 6 miles).  The WAG also served large tanneries in Elkland  and Westfield, PA just south of the NY-PA border.
