Catskill Mountain Railroad says it topped $1M in business in 2016

Article in the Daily Freeman.

The Catskill Mountain Railroad did more than $1 million in business in 2016 operating tourist trains on tracks in Shandaken, N.Y., and Kingston, N.Y., a company official says.

In fact, according to railroad President Ernie Hunt, the company has been doing over $1 million in annual business every year since 2014, a big jump from what he said had been annual revenue of about $150,000 a year through 2013.

Hunt said the railroad spent $700,000 over three years in litigation with Ulster County, the owner of the tracks on which the railroad operates, when the county tried to evict the company.

In a letter to volunteers and supporters, Hunt called 2016 the toughest year ever for the railroad, which offers scenic and themed train rides, but said he looks forward to 2017, which he expects will be better
