The Delaware & Ulster Railroad is scheduled to open for the 2017 season beginning on Saturday, July 2.
Round trips are 24 miles between Arkville, NY and Roxbury, NY and take approximately two hours to complete.
D&U staff point out the highlights along the excursion, which winds past rural hamlets, farmland and historic sites such as the Hubbell Family Farm in Kelly Corners and the Round Barn in Halcottsville. Much of the trip parallels one of the country’s finest trout streams, the East Branch of the Delaware River.
The grade traveled by the train is relatively flat, but the gorgeous Catskill Mountains frame the tracks for much of the trip, completing the magnificent backdrop.
The excursion operates on Saturdays and Sundays. Riders can then enjoy the pleasures of a Catskill Mountain summer with the train’s motion creating a cooling breeze for those opting to ride in the open-air cars.
The September and October rides present some of the most popular trips as visitors bask in the glow of unparalleled fall foliage splendor.
