Notes: The Ulster & Delaware used to bring travelers and goods to this part of the Catskills. Now it shuttles passengers the 24 miles from Arkville and Roxbury — along the river and past small towns and farms. You can see the train from our farm . . . and the farm from the train. Look, there it is now . . .
