Loved they offer theme nights on the train. Nice to offer travelers a sampling of local brews and wines in an unbiased atmosphere. The staff was extremely friendly and very knowledgeable not only on the beers and wine but also the trains history. Our tour took us from Utica to Remsen but other routes are available.

We had a fun time on the train robbery. The actors were great, got our kids involved and we all had fun. Very well done!

A must do! A wonderful experience and a fun way to spend an evening with friends. Wine AND Beer tasting along with great music and dancing if you'd like to join in. A great value AND you get a buy one, get one free coupon after your first purchase (I think it's still going on). Bring a small cooler with... More

There was plenty of scenery to see on our way to Thendara but my boyfriend and I found it frustrating the amount of times the train either slowed to a crawl or stopped altogether. This made us behind schedule when arriving in Thendara, and while we had time to eat the lunch I had packed after taking the shuttle over... More

From the moment my family of 8 stepped into the train station I had a bad feeling about what lay ahead. We retrieved our tickets from will call easily and joined the group of pajama clad passengers waiting for elves to come to get us for the train. The elves. If I could award zero stars I would.

Enjoyed the scenic rail road as the leaves turned in Autumn. My son and I loved it. They even has an open car to take pictures. The foliage and the ambiance was fantastic.

The adirondack railroad offers a Polar Express in Nov/Dec. This is an outing geared for young children, who have some familiarity with the story, but even young who just want to see Santa. While not an inexpensive outing, a lovely chance to ride aboard a vintage train and capture some Christmas magic. The staff is volunteer, and the host made... More

Didn't know what to expect, but our son loved it... So anything I could have viewed as poor or great was overshadowed by his smile. Thanks to all volunteers for giving my son a great rendition of the movie...
