Flag of United States Kingston, United States

Kingston is a city in and the county seat of Ulster County, New York, United States. It is 91 mi north of New York City and 59 mi south of Albany. It became New York's first capital in 1777, and was burned by the British on October 13, 1777, after the Battles of Saratoga. In the 19th century, the city became an important transport hub after the discovery of natural cement in the region, and had both railroad and canal connections. Passenger rail service has since ceased, and many of the older buildings are part of three historic districts, such as the Stockade District uptown, the Midtown Neighborhood Broadway Corridor, and the Rondout-West Strand Historic District downtown. - Wikipedia

  • Catskill Mountain Railroad

    The Catskill Mountain Railroad, is a heritage tourist railroad based in Kingston, New York, that began operations in 1982. While freight service was no longer offered, regular passenger excursions were operated on two sections of track separated by three washouts as a result of severe flooding. The railroad leased the former New York Central Railroad Catskill Mountain branch from Kingston to Highmount, New York, where it connected with the Delaware & Ulster Railroad (D&U). The railroad connected the Hudson Valley with the Catskill Mountains of New York State. The corridor was purchased by Ulster County in 1979 from the estate of Penn Central and subsequently leased to Catskill Mountain Railroad in 1982. The CMRR's lease with Ulster County expired on May 31, 2016 and the railroad ceased operations on that date. On August 6, 2016, the CMRR resumed operations under a new permit agreement with Ulster county for two portions of the Catskill Mountain Branch in Ulster County. In 2017, the railroad was awarded a five-year permit to operate trains on a five-mile segment of track from Kingston to West Hurley.
