  The Only All-Rail Route: Beginning at KINGSTON POINT, that famous old Hudson River landing of former, years, which has now been restored and greatly improved, this mountain track of the Ulster & Delaware line never ends until the entire Catskill range has been crossed, and the village of Oneonta, in Otsego county, 108 miles from this eastern terminus, is reached. Here at the Point, passengers from the elegant and popular Day Line steamers, "New York" and "Albany," may board the Ulster & Delaware trains for any point in the range, stepping directly from their palatial decks to the cars . The transfer of baggage is quickly effected, and there is no change of cars between the river and the bills. After the delightful sail up the river one is ready to enjoy the speedy whirl by train inland and among the mountains to the fullest extent, The start is made over the river shoal and up the Rondout Creek for two miles, when (Rondout is reached.)
