    Historical Context

    The Goshen and Deckertown Railway was also known as the Pine Island Branch and ran the relatively modest 6 mile (or so) route from the Orange County’s county seat, Goshen, to the rich farming land of Pine Island.

    Goshen is located about 60 miles northwest of New York City, and is the home of the National Hall of Fame of the Horse Trotting industry.
