Mountain Railroads of New York State, Vol. 4 - Purple Mountain Press


MOUNTAIN RAILROADS OF NEW YORK STATE
VOLUME FOUR:
WHERE DID THE TRACKS GO IN THE CATSKILLS?

by Michael Kudish


This final volume of Mountain Railroads of New York State (1,228 pages in four volumes) covers the Catskills region from the Hudson Valley to the West Branch Delaware River Valley. Included are the Ulster & Delaware; the Delaware & Northern; the New York, Ontario & Western's Delhi Branch; and the Catskill Mountain Railroad with its connecting narrow-gauged lines in Greene County. A series of short lines that served individual industries and construction sites are also described along with a few railroads that were partially built but never completed. Also included are brief chronologies of the two recent tourist lines: the (second) Catskill Mountain Railroad and the Delaware & Ulster Rail Ride.

A catalog of 379 railroad-related industries and facilities is included, and each rail line is illustrated in detail on 191 maps.
