Not true. Our two orgs in WNY have been using it since mid-May to track when we open. We knew we were phase 4 all along.

Went on that page as recently as last week. No links, no guidance. As seen by Cuomo playing games with gyms, malls and the like.

CMRR resumed operations on Saturday July 11th, using flat cars only. We will be running with flat cars only for the foreseeable future. EH

Woodland Valley Road crossing, Phonecia, sometime in the 1960’s.

Photo taken by Douglas Thornton. His family owned a bungalow on the Esopus Creek.
As kids, when we heard the whistle blow, we ran like heck to the crossing.
Watching cars being switched out was fascinating to us kids.
Awesome memories.

Fair Use:
The Catskill Mountain Railroad has had dramatic success as a tourist railroad in recent years and has been a significant source of revenue for Ulster County. In 2019, its ridership was up nine percent to 41,115 passengers. Its revenues were up four percent to $1,490,000.

Some recent photos of the CMRR:


The CMRR last week brought down 2 additional flats from Kingston. We now have a 5 car train:

We are limiting capacity to 25% or 60 per train to maintain social distancing guidelines.

Makes sense - it is linking to a ny.gov web page, the official home of nothing.
