The Catskill Rare Mileage Charter Trains

Sponsored by the Southern Appalachia Railway Museum

A Day of Train Rides on the


and the


Tuesday, May 17, 2011



The Southern Appalachia Railway Museum announces a series of special train rides covering much of the Trolley Museum of New York and the Catskill Mountain Railroad lines out of Kingston, New York. Come join us as we travel across the hill country of the western Adirondacks. Here is your chance to combine several trips into one visit. These trips include several photo runbys each day.

The Southern Appalachia Railway Museum is based in the Knoxville-Oak Ridge, Tennessee, area and operates the Secret City Scenic Excursion Train through the former K-25 Manhattan Project facility.


All of the equipment used on the trip will be supplied by the individual rail operations. The equipment has been restored for modern use but may not be fully accessible for all passengers. Steps and narrow aisles may make it difficult for some people. Additionally, photo stop locations will not be at regular stations and may be difficult for some people to get on and off the train. Because of the historical design of the rail passenger equipment, passengers needing special assistance are asked to make arrangements on their own for physical help.

On-Board Services:

To ensure adequate space on the cars, passengers are encouraged to carry only small bags or coolers. Coolers and bags must fit overhead or under seats to keep the aisles clear. No alcohol is allowed.

Hotels and Local Information:

Passengers are expected to make their own hotel reservations and accommodations to get to and from the train. There are numerous hotels in the Kingston area.
