Working on the Railroad

 "Where were the tracks?"  That is one of the more frequently asked questions by visitors to the  Society's Ulster and Delaware Station in Haines Falls.  You can see where the tracks were as outlined by string in the photo.Later this year the string will be replaced by actual tracks. TheCatskill Mountain Railroad (CMR) is donating 120 feet of rails to help recreate a portion of the railbed  in front of the U&D train station. In order to make this a reality,  MTHS needs to purchase railroad ties and ballast for the track AND we need the help of volunteers on track-laying day.  The cost of materials is estimated at about $3,000. Both donations and volunteers are needed.  You can donate here or fill out the downloadable Working on the Railroad Form. Please email This email address is being protected from spambots.
