The Adirondack Railroad will inaugurate the first passenger train to originate from Tupper Lake on the former New York Central Railroad corridor at 12:30 pm on Sunday, July 16th – 131 years after the first passenger train arrived in the community on July 16, 1892, from Malone.
The new, approximately two-hour round-trip service will travel to a turnaround point just south of the Sabattis Siding. Passengers will have the unique opportunity every Sunday until October 8th, to view the the heart of the Adirondack Park that cannot be seen from a car. A light lunch and refreshments will be available. Volunteer docents will answer questions passengers may have.
For decades, the railroad served both famous and not-so-famous families, such as the Webb, Morgan, Vanderbilt, Whitney, and Roosevelt clans, carrying them from Utica to their destinations in the Adirondack Mountains and as far away as Montreal, and also provided freight service to communities along the way.
