Grand Hotel station, MP 41.4 of the Ulster and Delaware Railroad, was located in the small mountain hamlet of Highmount, New York, at the summit between Big Indian and Arkville. A turntable was located here, allowing pusher engines to be turned before descending to Arkville or Big Indian.

History[edit]

It served as a stop for the Grand Hotel and the Highmount post office. It was extremely busy until the New York Central Railroad ended Oneonta to Kingston passenger service on the line, on March 31, 1954. It was left to fall apart, become an eyesore, and was soon demolished.
