Pine Hill Railroad Station

Pine Hill Railroad Station

Pine Hill Station, MP 39.7 on the Ulster and Delaware Railroad (U&D), served the village of Pine Hill, New York. It was constructed on the slope of Belle Ayr Mountain 100 feet above the village along the steep grade running from Big Indian to the summit at Grand Hotel Station. The famous double horseshoe curves on the U&D were located just west of the station.

Pine Hill has a large spring and for many years large quantities of bottled water were shipped from here. This station was abandoned after the end of passenger service on the U&D in 1954, and was soon torn apart because it was in such bad condition. It was on the same hill that now stands next to the artificial Pine Hill Lake.

The railroad tracks next to the former station site are now leased to the Catskill Mountain Railroad, and were cleared of brush and vegetation in June, 2006. In July, 2006, a North American Railcar Operators Association sponsored NERCA speeder meet on the Delaware and Ulster Railroad was extended to Pine Hill, the first rail traffic to reach the station site in nearly 30 years.
