Grand Opening of The Pomeroy Family Railroad at the Copake Iron Works


Friends of Taconic State Park (FTSP) will celebrate the grand opening of the Pomeroy Family Railroad at the Copake Iron Works in Taconic State Park. The public is invited to attend the celebration and take an inaugural ride on railroad. The Pomeroy Family Railroad, built and operated entirely by volunteers, will run on a 950 foot loop and will pull two ore carts retrofitted to carry children and adults of all ages. The train replicates the narrow gauge railroad that circumnavigated the Copake Iron Works during its 19th century heyday. The original train transported iron ore from the nearby mine (the area now known as the Ore Pit Swimming Area) to the blast furnace located in the center of the Iron Works.
