Details

From the late 1800`s through the 1940`s, the steam locomotives of the Ulster & Delaware, Catskill Mountain Railroad, New York Central, New York, Ontario & Western, and Delaware & Northern climbed mountain grades bound for the grand hotels and boarding houses of the Catskills Mountains. They returned with lumber, bluestone, dairy and agricultural products for the NYC area. Antique railway cars are being restored in Phoenicia: A 1900`s Boston & Maine baggage car, a Central Vermont 1929 automobile-carrying box car, and others.
