Trail plan could mark end of line for railroad
By Kathryn Gill, Freeman staff

KINGSTON - Ulster County may drop a long-term plan for a tourist train from Kingston to Highmount in favor of a 38-mile hiking and biking trail along the former Ulster & Delaware Railroad corridor.

Please take the time to read the whole article: (click here (http://www.dailyfreeman.com/site/news.cfm?newsid=15985980&BRD=1769&PAG=461&dept_id=74969&rfi=6))

Sound familiar? This is almost the same reason for the near demise of the Western Maryland Scenic Railroad - trail vs. rail. And, just as rail enthusiasts nationwide overwhelmed the officials of Alleghany County with their support of the WMSR, we should also show our support for the Catskill Mountain Railroad and the Trolley Museum of New York, and let the officials of Ulster County know that we want them to save both railroads - and not destroy them with another rail-trail!

Please take the time to e-mail Bill Tobin, Principal Transportation Planner of Ulster County, and tell him that you support the Catskill Mountain Railroad. It doesn't have to be long; it doesn't have to be overemotional: just a simple note showing your support of the CMRR. Email him at wtob@co.ulster.ny.us

NSFan14, do you realize your posts are all scrolling by? If it's an oversight you might want to fix it. If it's intentional, you might want to reconsider. It's difficult and annoying trying to read your posts.
