When you’re in the mood for some unique entertainment, the Delaware & Ulster Railroad offers several specialty events that promise plenty of family-oriented fun.
Twilight on the Rails Music Trains
Twilight on the Rails excursions are hosted several times during our season aboard the D&U. These specially scheduled rides depart the Arkville Depot at 5:30 p.m. or 6:30 p.m. (check schedule for date and time) and provide an evening of live music aboard the train featuring some of the region’s top bands.
Passengers are invited to bring picnic meals and their beverages of choice.
July 5 - Blues Maneuver
Aug. 2 - Onkor
Aug. 30 – Blues Maneuver
The Blues Maneuver performing swingin’ blues and classic R&B with a mighty horn section.
It’s entertainment of a different sort when the D&U is hit by “train robbers.” Dressed in period garb, these historically accurate desperadoes recreate the flavor of the old west as they “hold up” the train and its passengers. The good news for passengers is that lawmen can be counted on to keep order when they arrive in the nick of time.
The robberies are presented by The Catskill Mountain Bushwackers. These train robbery reenactments offer thrills and enjoyment for children and adults.
Please check our website for an updated schedule on this summer’s Great Train Robbery :

with the bandits “sticking up” the

The D&U has hosted many special events over the years, including several visits from the loveable Thomas The Tank Engine®. Please check our site regularly for event additions.
