Ulster & Delaware Railroad Historical Society had the great good fortune last year to obtain a copy of the railroad's 1888 "General Directory of the Adult Population of all the Villages and Stations" on the U&D, Stony Clove & Catskill Mountain, and Kaaterskill Railroads. At the time, the railroad ran from Rondout only as far as Hobart; the extension to Oneonta wasn't completed till 1900. We promised Joyce last year to start publishing the Delaware County part of this (Fleischmanns to Hobart), but it's a huge job. We'll start with Roxbury, because we have the depot there; then we'll go do Fleischmanns /Griffins Corners/ Red Kill, because our president's weekend farm is there, then we'll follow the railroad out from Fleischmanns. --Steve Delibert, President, Ulster & Delaware Railroad Historical Society, November 2, 2001

Here's the first installment --
