...and you actually see a prison as part of the 'scenic' beauty. While review postings can be venting sessions, this review should be considered a serious mental health warning. Stay away if you value your sanity. Our intention was to enjoy a relaxing train trip through the scenic Adirondack mountains. The reality was a trip that seemingly stopped time, while simultaneously draining our wallets and our will to live. The prices ($20 for adults, $10 for kids) made our group feel robbed once we boarded the mildew ridden train, with ripped upholstery and stained carpeting. The only thing worse than seeing a wall of trees for the 45 minute ride (interspersed with a couple of beaver ponds, garbage in people's back yards and a community college which was actually called out by the tour guide as a point of interest), was realizing that after a 45 minute layover at the connecting train station that we had to experience the entire scenic trip again.
