Thendara Station

Join us on August 12th at Thendara’s historic station to help us celebrate our 25th Anniversary with a full weekend of activities! Travel back in time aboard a vintage 1924 Baldwin 0-4-0 “Viscose Company” #6 steam engine, as you enjoy the beauty of the Adirondack Park. To celebrate bringing back a steam engine to the Adirondack Park, the Viscose #6 will be pulling passengers in the Adirondacks all day! Scotty’s Jump n Fun Party Rentals will be on hand providing Trackless Train rides, a Fire Truck Playhouse, and other amusement rides for children. They will also have their food truck and snack trolley on location. Kiss FM will be providing a live broadcast and music during the day. Shuttle service from downtown Old Forge to the Thendara Station will be offered throughout the day.

Our regularly scheduled Utica to Thendara with Layover trip will feature vintage locomotives double heading with our twin F- Units 1502 & 1508.  Our regular Thendara trips to Otter Lake will feature a double head by our Alco RS-3 8223 & 8255. The Alco and F-Unit sets will feature a baggage car and coach cars. The Viscose #6 Steam Engine in addition to coach cars will also have an open air car and private caboose. The private caboose is available to charter, please see below for more information. We reserve the right to change the above equipment if needed with little or no notice.

Passengers can also take advantage of the Canoe & Rail Packages that are regularly offered.

Caboose Charters are available on August 12th being pulled behind the Viscose #6. The caboose can hold 6 to 8 passengers.

In addition to children’s rides, visitors on Sunday August 13th will be able to be an “Engineer for a day”! Patrons will be able to “drive” the Viscose #6 from the cab just as if they were a real engineer. Trips will run every hour on the hour from 9am to 5pm (excluding noon) Availability is limited and advance reservations are recommended.
