Artist's Description

Time goes faster the more hollow it is. Lives with no meaning go straight past you, like trains that don’t stop at your station.
~Carlos Ruiz Zafón
The new Mountaindale Railways Station, completed in 2009.
The municipal building features public restrooms and excellent parking access for the trail head of the Rails to Trails to Woodridge and beyond. This facility was made possible through a New York State Department of Transportation TEA-21 Grant and in-kind donations from Sullivan County, the Town of Fallsburg and local Mountaindale businesses and civic groups.

Its design is based on the 1920 architectural plans of an New York, Ontario & Western Railway (O&W) building proposed for Mountaindale but never built.

It has been a labor of love for town engineer Will lling to see to all the final details of design and decor. Both the interior and exterior have been painstakingly modeled after actual O&W depots of decades past.

Mountaindale Community Development Project has been working with Illing to curate a permanent exhibit of O&W train photographs so that visitors will have a feel for the mammoth engines that rumbled past this location in Mountaindale until the railway closed operations on March 29, 1957.

The Original station here burned years ago.
