The fall foliage train is back on track in the Catskills

The fall foliage train is back on track in the Catskills.  What a relief! the ride along the Esopus River is very scenic and taking a train ride is a great way to see the fall foliage.  All this was in jeopardy because Hurricane Irene caused extensive damage to the track;

I was concerned about the loss of the entire season because these rides bring tourist dollars to the area and would be a significant loss to the economy.

So plan to board the train this fall for a very scenic ride and keep in mind that the money you spend will contribute to the recovery of the area.

For details on the tours visit the Catskill Mountain Railroad website

In the meanwhile, here is a short video of a trip I took on the rail to see the fall foliage 2 years ago

Jon I promise to post fall photos when the season starts.   This post was to let people know the season is not lost because  some of the tracks in the Catskill were repaired


Tammy not sure how that post was p[ublic I was working on it.  I hope you return.  Fall photos will be posted in a few weeks.

Glad Irene did not cause so much jeopardy that it closed down the train.  I'll be looking forward to checking out some of the fall color you spoke about.

Jennifer I had a great time in Rhinebeck and your recommendations were excellent.  Thanks so much.  I ran into an agent that worked with you at Pru named Elizabeth Maher.
