Hop on in nearby North Creek and enjoy a scenic train ride along the Hudson River to Saratoga, and back.  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 full length dome cars are equipped with kitchens allowing for exceptional on-board dining prepared fresh to order. Beer and wine are also served. The passenger service harkens back to the days when train travel was sophisticated and elegant.

In the winter months, the Saratoga & North Creek Railway operates an historic route to North Creek called the Snow Train. It had been over 70 years since the Snow Train operated when the railroad resurrected the idea in 2011. With heated cars, on-board dining, equipment storage and free shuttle service to Gore Mountain for all the exciting winter sports, the Snow Train is a new way to experience some old time North Country fun.
