Anyone know if the Kingsboro Station was used in to the 50's for the
mixed train to Broadalbin? Any uses for the railroad after that? I
know it was torn down in 1960...
During the winter of 55-56, the YMCA sponored a round trip ride from
Gloversville to Broadalbin. If I remember correctly the ride was
fifty cents. I was lucky enough to be on this trip. I walked down to
the station on Fulton Street to get the train but on the return trip
from Broadalbin, I asked if the train could stop at the Kingsboro
station so I could get off, my home being on East State Street. It
did, so I consider myself the "last offical passenger" to use the
Kingsboro station. From what I understand, the train would stop
almost any place a paying passenger wanted it to.
