COVID 19 Statement
The scenic railroad industry was not included in phase 4 of Governor Cuomo’s plans to reopen NYS. It is not clear at this time when we might be able to begin operating our train rides again. We are working to be prepared to begin those operations once we are given the green light.
We ARE currently operating our Adirondack Rail Bike Adventures out of the Thendara station, under Phase 4 guidelines. We are operating in accordance with practices suggested by the CDC. We are disinfecting our rail bikes between departures, and will be doing the same with the trains once they begin operations. Come join us in Thendara for some healthy outdoor fun! We look forward to seeing you soon!
