Let's Take the Train to the Ashokan Reservoir

On Kingston Community Radio, on Wed.,Feb.25th, Walt Maxwell, Ray Rice and I discussed the recently released Catskill Mt.Railroad Business Plan for Kingston to the Glenford Dike at the edge of the Ashokan Reservoir. Let's all call Mike Hein at 340-3636 and tell him to not rip up the 5 miles of track between Hurley Mt.Road near Kenco to the Glenford Dike at the Ashokan Reservoir. Tell him we are all looking forward to taking the CMRR train from the Kingston Plaza to the Reservoir. The business plan says that the train to and from the Reservoir could be running daily every 2 hours, ie. 10am, 12pm, 2pm, 4pm. Isn't this plan exciting? Mike, please don't rip up the tracks to the Glenford Dike. Listen to the audio file of my chat with Walter and Ray by going to the Facebook page for Kingston Community Radio or KCR and listen to the 3 audio files posted on Feb.27th.

Tim. Mike Hein's new plan calls for ripping up the 5 miles of track from Kenco at the Hurley Mt. Road to the Glenford Dike. This removal of track will prevent tourists at local residents from taking the train from the Kingston Plaza to the edge of the Ashokan Reservoir at the Glenford Dike. Mike Hein is not forward looking if he wants to destroy this valuable rail link forevermore.

Let's Clear the Haze. We need to keep the railroad tracks from Kenco on Hurley Mt.Road to the Glenford Dike on the edge of the Ashokan Reservoir. Who in their right mind would Rip up those tracks to prevent the tourist trains from reaching the Ashokan Reservoir.

Personally, I can't wait to take the proposed Reservoir trains that could be scheduled every 2 hours at 10am, 12noon, 2pm, and 4pm. Imagine, "let's drive to Kingston, get off Exit 19, go to the Kingston Plaza, take 10am train to the Reservoir, come back to the Kingston Plaza on the 4pm train, spend some time on Wall Street in Kingston, have dinner, spend money in Kingston, etc.
