Saratoga and North Creek Railway

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.

Customer Reviews

The ride was such fun for the grandkids, who had never been on a train before...the food was great and we all had a great time
Sandra L. · April 22, 2017
Overall I enjoyed the experience. I do wish I had done it earlier in the season though when it didn't get dark so early. Service was really good, the food was just okay.
Kimberley K. · November 1, 2016
This was an amazing trip and the food was fantastic, I never would have thought we could get that quality on a train! I did feel a little bad for the people sitting on the other side of the train because the train does not turn around, so if you are on he river side you get to see it the whole time. Would definitely do this again!
