Make a Donation

Our operations are funded entirely from grants from local stakeholders, ticket sales, memberships and through generous donations from supporters like you. Your donations help keep railroad history alive in the Western Catskills and Delaware County. Our railroad supports the local economy by providing employment for the maintenance of track, locomotives and rolling stock. Donations can be easily made online using the form below by mail at:

We are committed to restoration and preservation of our unique collection of railroad locomotives and equipment. A list of our current projects is included under current projects. You will see, “Current Projects,” we have an ambitious program to restore and expand our railroad operations.

Many of our grants provide the opportunity to be matched by donations, to double the amount of funding for specific projects.

Some of our current projects include: 

  • Matching Grant for Track Crew Labor
  • Matching Grant for Locomotive / Motive Power Repairs
  • Restoration of our 1928 Brill Car, the #M-405
  •  Locomotive Paint Fund; #116 and #5106
