Delaware & Ulster Rail Excursion

I want to take one last opportunity to let anyone who may have missed the advertisement of the O&WRHS Sponsored excursion on the Delaware & Ulster Railway on September 12, 2015.

Our trip will be headed by a Delaware & Hudson RS-36 and will leave Arkville, NY at 11:00 am sharp and will arrive at Roxbury, NY at approximately 12:15 pm. After a short layover at the beautiful Roxbury Depot, our train will then return to Arkville. During our 22 mile ride we will enjoy a sumptuous lunch aboard the D&U’s dining cars as we embrace the bucolic scenery of New York’s Catskill Mountains. A tour of the NYO&W equipment including Bobber Caboose No. 8206 and NW-2 No. 116, will be provided by the Ulster & Delaware Railway Historical Society after we return in Arkville so no one will miss out on this!

We have over 50 seats sold and we have room for many more, so it is NOT too late to reserve a seat. Several noted authors will be on board including Robert Mohowski, Malcolm Houck, Allan Seebach, and John Hamm so if you have any publications by these writers please bring them along and they will gladly inscribe them for you. Accomplished O&W artist Carl Ohlson will also be joining us so don’t be afraid to ask for his signature on any O&W artwork. We know many of you don’t get a chance to make our meeting and events so bring your books or artwork, get them signed, and throw them back in your car!

Please make checks payable to “O&WRHS” and send to Ron Vassallo, 106 Bellgrove Drive Apt. 1B, Mahwah NJ 07430.

If you are nervous about your check arriving on time I will call or e-mail anyone that responds between now and September 1st and let you know your check was received and where your seats are located. This has to be the cutoff for payment as we have payment requirements  two weeks in advance of the trip.

Please make sure to choose your meal selection for each seat reserved by checking your selection(s) in the box provided on the return form.

The Delaware & Ulster Railroad is located at 43510 State Highway 28, Arkville, NY 12406.
