About the Historical Society

The Middletown and Unionville Railroad, successor to the Middletown, Unionville and Water Gap Railroad, operated from December 1, 1913, until May 31, 1946, when it was reorganized as the Middletown and New Jersey Railway. The railroad's main revenue was derived from the transportation of dairy products, feed, coal, lumber, and passengers along its 14.5-mile right-of-way from the city of Middletown through Slate Hill, Johnson, Westtown, and Unionville in Orange County, New York. It provided a connection between the Erie Railroad in Middletown; the New York, Ontario & Western Railway in Middletown; and the New York, Susquehanna & Western Railroad in New Jersey. All three of these railroads had unique relationships with the M&U during its period of operation.
Douglas Barberio is a founding member of the Middletown and New Jersey Railway Historical Society and has served in various capacities as an officer and trustee. He is currently the coeditor for the society's quarterly newsletter, the Unionville Flyer, and has written a number of articles for the publication. He has presented many lectures on the railroads that formerly operated in the tristate area around Orange County.
