U&D Passenger Traffic Declines

Passenger business on the Ulster & Delaware Railroad for the past season shows a falling off from the summer of 1923. The high peak of ticket sales was reached in 1912 when over 260,000 passengers were carried by rail to the Catskill Mountains. With the increase in automobiles there has been a corresponding decline in passenger traffic on the shorter line railroads. Owing to the nearness of the Catskills to New York plus the good roads the loss to the U&D from motor vehicle transportation is greater than railroad lines erving other mountain resorts.
