Adirondack Railroad Publicity Run
Author: ut-1

Adirondack Railroad's entire season was cancelled due to COVID-19.

However, on Oct 8th the railroad ran a non-revenue train Utica-Thendara to take photos for their 2021 marketing effort and to test their newly acquired dome car (ex-UP built 1955) and diner (ex-NY Central, built 1948, donated by Amtrak). This was the first run on the Adirondack for the dome & diner.

We catch the short train in Ottter Lake, NY.

Great video - thanks!

Brings back memories of the late 1940s/early 1950s, visiting family friends with a camp on the island in Otter Lake.  Hearnig the steamers climbing the hill in the night. Watching the mail bags drop and the grab from the pole at the station (post office, plus a small general store, at the station). NY State summer music camp across route 12 from the station.  It was a different world back then, but re-awakend with the scenes from the video.

Rather optimistic I fear. Dr. Fachi said maybe Summer 2021; Mayo Clinic suggests 2021 as a end-point. I certainly hope not, but I have gotten a life-time of honey-dos done, a commissioned painting done and I've finally begun my layout.

>>>Brings back memories of the late 1940s/early 1950s,

Me, too!  GCT to Sabattis for summer camp at Long Lake.  Pullman sleeper, very early arrival, like maybe 5:30,am.  If I recall correctly, the train was part of the LSL to Utica.  Maybe pulled by lightning striped RS3s.
