Oneonta - Kingston Route to Have Two Trains Each Way During Period Highways are Unsuitable for Traffic

The Ulster & Delaware railroad, running from Oneonta to Kingston, Saturday announced that, effective this morning, the week day train service, which was in effect until November 30, last, would be restored because of the impassable condition of the roads. This is to continue until further notice. The timetable provides that first class passenger trains will leave Oneonta each week day at 7:30 a.m. and 1:45 p.m. Trains are due to arrive week days at 11:50 a.m. and 6:40 p.m. It is felt that the Sunday traffic may be served during this period by one round trip, no change from the schedule which has been in effect for several months.

It will be remembered the the railroad company in its application for the reduction in service contended that with the exception of a very few days during the winter bus lines could accomodate local service wherever necessary, and this voluntary restoration of service when the highways are impassable is to be commended as an evidence of good faith and an accomodation which will be widely appreciated.
