Less known railroads

August 18, 2011

LIVINGSTON MANOR, NY — Morgan Outdoors will host historian and author Michael Kudish, presenting a geographic tour of three historic tributary railroads that connected with the Ontario & Western (O&W) main line, on Saturday, August 20 at 7 p.m. The free public program will include a series of hand-drawn maps from Kudish’s book “Where Did the Tracks Go in the Catskills?” just published by Purple Mountain Press.

Among the obscure branches covered by Kudish will be the Treyz Railroad, which ran along Russell Brook north of Roscoe—a short logging railroad, barely four miles long, that almost connected with the O&W at Butternut Grove; the Delaware & Northern (D&N) Railroad, which connected at East Branch station; and O&W’s Delhi Branch, which connected with the main in Walton. RSVPs are encouraged. Call 845/439 5507.
