7AM Ride

Here’s the railway I mentioned in my last post. It’s a scenic two-hour trip that runs between Saratoga and North Creek in the Adirondacks. Most trains (especially those in the US) are not worth writing about…but this is another story. 

I mean, how cute is this? White tablecloths, swing music, and those little lamps!

I got on for a 7am morning ride (Ken and Melanie – thanks for driving) in the dome car.

And woke up with a cup of tea. 

Check out these breakfast menus. It was a slow morning so the conductor himself came over to take my order. Wish all trains were this pleasant to ride.

One giant omelette with everything (seriously), peppery home fries, and buttered toast. 

Caught this view halfway through the trip. Serene. Had to stand between cars for the shot…nearly fell off the train.

Best conductor ever. Hope we meet again ^_^

    Hi Kathy,I’m looking to take a similar trip in which I’d like to take the SNCRR up to North Creek and then somehow drive back down to Saratoga Springs the following day. Do you mind if I ask what you did with the car when you got to North Creek since you took a one-way trip with it. Is there car rental pick-up/drop-off somewhere in North Creek that I can access a car?Thanks in advance!L
