On Lake George, there are certain sounds that define the summertime: the rustle of breeze-blown leaves, the burble of fish in the water, and the rumble of the North End Local as it pulls into the station. Run by the Saratoga and North Creek Railway, this seasonal train enters its second year of service to the lake and its surrounding Adirondack communities. The train shuttles between the towns of Thurman and North Creek during leisurely 50-minute sightseeing rides, but that's not its only form of travel; the train also takes passengers back to a time when glamor and artistry ruled the rails.
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 passenger service harkens back to the days when train travel was sophisticated and elegant. Traversing the First Wilderness Heritage Corridor, this scenic railroad connects riders with a multitude of great outdoor recreational opportunities such as hiking, camping, fishing and or exploring the quaint Adirondack town. Saratoga & North Creek Railway offers visitors a new adventure each time they ride.
