Passenger cars stored on CMRR in Kingston, NY

Postby 25Hz » Sat May 26, 2012 11:01 pm

Some years ago i discovered abandoned cars while poking around on google earth. They were somewhere near kingston but i don't remember exactly, but they were not far from a grade crossing and someone had taken photos of them. They looked abandoned/forgotten vs stored.

Can anyone help me figure out where they are again and their story? They seemed pre-ww2 in design. There were 3-4 total i believe all grouped together.

The cars belong to the Catskill Mountain Railroad. They are stored on the former Catskill Mountain Branch awaiting restoration.

There's a pretty active thread on the CMRR over at the New York State Railfan section. http://railroad.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=128&t=90310&start=75
The cars are discussed every now and then. There is a bridge over a river which has been o.o.s. forever which has blocked them from bringing those cars back to Kingston, but recently they have been rebuilding the bridge and are almost done. Lot of updates and pictures in the thread. I've been impressed watching progress. JS
