2016 Report


The U & D Railway Revitalization Corporation (UDRRC) was incorporated in the State of New York on June 20, 2016. We are a not-for-profit corporation and we are exempt from New York State sales tax. A copy of our exemption certificate is available for review.

On August 12, 2016, the U&DRRC was approved as a corporation exempt from federal taxes under section 50l(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code or corresponding section of any future federal tax code.

The organization looks forward to working with the local, County and State Governments, the trail consortiums, the DEP, local businesses, the Catskill Mountain Railroad, the Empire State Railroad Museum, the Kingston Trolley Museum, other rail vendors, and most importantly the public at large.

The U&D Railway Revitalization Corp will take the initiative to build on this to ensure that a railway remains intact for the entire length of the corridor. It will facilitate the revitalization of the rails and auxiliary uses of the corridor.
