The Saratoga & North Creek Railway was started in July of 2011 as a passenger service between Saratoga Springs and North Creek with seven station stops in between. Previous operators, the Upper Hudson Railroad, operated scenic train rides from North Creek. The start of the Saratoga & North Creek Railway extended the service to Saratoga Springs enabling a connection with the National Rail Network.
In addition to being a passenger railroad with on-time service at nine stations, the Saratoga & North Creek Railway boasts vintage rail cars and a powerful diesel engine that can carry passengers along the Hudson River for a truly unique view of the Adirondacks. The full length dome cars are equipped with kitchens allowing for exceptional on-board dining prepared fresh to order.
In the winter months, the Saratoga & North Creek Railway operates an historic route to North Creek called the Snow Train. It had been more than 70 years since the Snow Train operated when the railroad resurrected the idea in 2011. With heated cars, on-board dining, equipment storage and free shuttle service to Gore Mountain for all the exciting winter sports, the Snow Train is a new way to experience some old time North Country fun.
