Charter A Train

Charters at the Delaware & Ulster Railroad

At the Delaware & Ulster Railroad we offer the opportunity to schedule your own train for special occasions or group visits. Our railroad operates in The Western Catskill along the East Branch of the Delaware River.  Operation of special excursion and event trains are available for groups of 30 or more. We can help you plan your visit aboard our classic 1940’s Streamliner The Rip Van Winkle Flyer. Later this year we will also be able to accommodate children’s birthday parties, and other small gatherings in our traditional Red Caboose that will be coupled to our Excursion Train and perfect for small groups up to 12 passengers.
