Duffy's Bluff

Charles Duffy was chosen as the general manager for the new Buffalo Railway Company in 1912. The route was surveyed, first from Buffalo to Ucross and later extended to Clearmont. Ranches, right-of ways, canals and water rights were purchased. By the time the route was ready for construction, WWI had started. Duffy was still able to get the needed supplies, although it took him almost six years to complete the railroad. Buffalo residents questioned his ability to complete this project and called the railroad “Duffy’s Bluff.” Just before completion, Duffy suddenly disappeared. Nothing was ever known about him after he left Buffalo.
