.

   I have compiled the following rosters as a courtesy to other railfans and historians, and because I can find no other concise, all encompassing and complete historical record of the equipment owned and operated by either the Delaware & Ulster Railroad or the Catskill Mountain Railroad in a single location. This author is not affliated with either of the operations.

   Both operations are tourist / heritage railroads operating on the former Ulster & Delaware Railroad trackage, in both Ulster and Delaware Counties of New York.


DELAWARE & ULSTER RAILROAD


The Delaware & Ulster Railroad operation uses trackage in Ulster and Delaware Counties, NY; from Highmount (Grand Hotel) [MP41] to Roxbury [MP59], NY;
however it should be noted at the current time only the eastern segment of trackage from Arkville [MP48] to Highmount (Grand Hotel) [MP41] is not in service.
