Sun Oct 7 Fall Foliage Train. It was the perfect cool crisp sunny day to take this train trip through the beautiful Adirondack mountains. The trees were just ablaze with color. Standing outside at the back of the train afforded some great picture opportunities of the track and backdrop of mountains. Open seating first come first serve but I would recommend a seat in the snack car which may have been "first class" with very comfortable roomy seats vs the open car bench seating or the other possibly smaller "2nd class" car with narrower seats. The snack car also had the toilets and some dining car type seating with all around cleaner windows to enjoy the view ... very comfortable. The gift shop / museum at Saranac Lake was quite nice as was the museum station at Lake Placid. It's definitely worth the ride!
