The 95 minute documentary, by filmmaker, Tobe Carey, includes early railroads and such iconic lines as the New York, Ontario & Western Railway, the Ulster & Delaware Railroad, and the Catskill Mountain Railway/Otis Elevating Railway. Rails to the Catskills features interviews with several railroad historians, music by Paul Lounsbury and Dick Staber, plus vintage film, photographs, contemporary video footage, postcards and animated maps.
