The Catskill Mountain Railroad (Aired on October 11, 2014)
Volunteer Neil Isabelle discusses the Catskill Mountain Railroad, two different scenic trips on vintage rail cars through the picturesque Esopus Creek valley in Ulster Country, NY, and through the historic city of Kingston, NY. Special rides in the fall showcase the autumn foliage and in winter there is the Polar Express. Summer rides are also available in July and August that are timed for the full moon. These rides, and some others, also feature music or other entertainment. Isabelle became interested in the trains by volunteering at the Empire State Railway Museum in Phoenicia, NY, another tourist attraction in Ulster County.
