Five railroads once passed through Ulster County, with Kingston being the main hub. These railroads—the Central New England Railway, the West Shore Railroad, the New York, Ontario & Western Railway, the Wallkill Valley Railroad, and the Ulster & Delaware Railroad—provided a means to transport produce and products from New York State's emerging frontier to New York City, some 70 miles south of Ulster County. Ulster County Railroads provides a glimpse into the lives of the people who worked on the railroad and those who depended on it for transport of goods and personal transportation.
