Empire State Railway Museum

Empire State Railway Museum

Visitors can tour the inside of a Delaware and Hudson Railway baggage car, or view the restoration of a 19th-century locomotive, Engine 23. The station is the northwest terminus of Catskill Mountain Railroad’s Kingston-Phoenicia line, which offers scenic rides of the region in vintage coach cars. The museum is dedicated to bringing alive the history of these railroads, their people and the towns they served, to the residents and visitors of the Catskill Mountains and the greater Hudson Valley.

We hope you enjoy our work.
