Adirondack Scenic Railroad Celebrates 20 Years of Service

This Independence Day has special meaning for the Adirondack Scenic Railroad.  The tourist line through New York’s North County celebrates 20 years since their first run.

The inagural run of the Adirondack Scenic Railroad took place on July 4 1992.  The train ran a much shorter route back then, less than 5 miles from their Thendara base near Old Forge.

Today there are two mainline runs, one from Utica to Thendara and another running from Lake Placid.

The hope remains to fully connect Utica to Lake Placid.

From the Adirondack Scenic Railroad’s Facebook page commemorating the occasion:

With over 55,000 passengers the first year, no one imagined it would turn it to what it is today! Four stations, numerous flag stops, and over 1 million passengers later we are celebrating by beginning construction of the track further north to Big Moose Lake. Here’s to another great 20 years (any many more) and the completion of the 141 mile Utica-Lake Placid rail corridor!
