Utica, NY – The railroad announced it is again offering unique getaways that chase away the winter blahs. Several hundred area residents and visitors enjoyed these adventures last year.

Beginning January 20, 2024, the very popular Cabin Fever Train will leave Utica Union Station at 11 AM, travelling to Remsen and return by 2 PM. At the Remsen Depot passengers will be able to enjoy a warm fire, hot chocolate, and s’mores. “We started this to provide an opportunity for families and friends to get together for a fun adventure break in the weather monotony that often happens at this time of year,” said General Manager Frank Kobliski. The service will also operate January 28th, February 17th and 24th, March 9th and 17th, and April 6th and 13th.

In February the Adirondack Valentine’s Day Dinner Train is a special opportunity for couples to celebrate. A complimentary drink and a new special menu, hand crafted by local chef Pat O’Connor, owner of Feasts and Festivities by O’Connor, helps create a romantic and memorable experience. This service is offered on February 9th, 10th, and 14th.  The departure from Union Station in Utica is at 6 PM going to Remsen and return by 9 PM. The menu selection can be made when tickets are purchased.

“Many of our customers who have been able to enjoy these trains in prior years have told us how much they enjoyed the trip, the service, and the new memories made,” Kobliski added.
