Overview

For over 130 years, the Erie Railroad's Newburgh branch was a key factor in the economic and social life of the city of Newburgh, New York, and the towns that had stations along its 19-mile route between Newburgh and the Erie main line. Only five miles of this once vital rail link survive today. Looking at this lightly used rail spur today, the casual passerby would have no hint of the rich history that can be seen for only a moment from the car window. Erie Railroad's Newburgh Branch will take both dedicated and new railfans back to the days when rail travel was every town's modern mode of transport as well as its economic lifeblood. It was a simpler time, before the age of air travel and America's love affair with a new invention called the automobile.
