BEDT 14 & NYOW 8206 footnote added Delaware & Ulster RR rosters

x

   I have compiled the following rosters as a courtesy, and because I can find no other concise, all encompassing and complete historical record of the equipment owned and operated by either the Delaware & Ulster Railroad or the Catskill Mountain Railroad.

   Both of these operations are tourist  / heritage railroads operating on the former Ulster & Delaware RR trackage, in the Northern Catskill region of New York State.


DELAWARE & ULSTER RAILROAD


The Delaware & Ulster RR operation uses trackage in Delaware County, NY;
from Highmount (Grand Hotel) [MP41] to Roxbury [MP59], NY;
but it should be noted that the eastern segment of trackage
from Arkville [MP48] to Highmount (Grand Hotel) [MP41] is not currently in service.
