Ulster & Delaware Railroad
"The Only All Rail Route Through the Catskills"


U&D 13

U&D 17 (1st)

The Ulster & Delaware yards at Rondout bustled with activity during its height. They not only freight yards, but the U&D locomotive shops as well. With all these actvities locomotives commonly refered to as "switchers" or "yard goats" were used to handle the switching operations within the yard. The U&D had a total of two of these little locomotives, although they were often supplemented by one or more of the larger locomotives in the busy season. #13 and 14 both had long careers in the Rondout yards and served up until the New York Central takeover in 1932.
