Adirondack Railroad Train Operations to Begin Again this Friday, July 2nd

It’s “all aboard” the Adirondack Railroad as train operations are set to begin again this Friday, July 2nd, after almost nineteen months of suspension due to Covid-19.

Excursion trains from Thendara to Otter Lake will start on July 2nd, with trains from Utica to Thendara starting July 10th. On July 23rd, the railroad will start the much-anticipated Beer & Wine Train series featuring live music. The beer and wine trains will run thru mid-October. One of their most popular trains, the Polar Express, will be opening additional seats for all trips this holiday season.

The Adirondack RR trains are also available for private charter service and group events.
