The Adirondack Scenic Railroad

After checking my bike and gear into the transition area at Ironman Lake Placid, we had some time to kill. So, we took advantage of a neat resource and boarded the Adirondack Scenic Railroad. The non-profit railroad is run by volunteers. We took the train from Lake Placid to Saranac Lake. We spent 45 minutes at a playground, then made the return trip. Our son really enjoyed the experience. We enjoyed the hospitality and history.

Tickets please!

The open air car allows you to take in the beautiful Adirondack surroundings. The engine was built by the Electro-Motive division of General Motors in 1959. It was a 750 horsepower diesel beast. We watched it hook up to the cars a couple of times. Industrial history is fabulous. We were told that the engine and some of the cars are used in the winter at the Polar Express in Utica. The Adirondack Scenic Railroad is open until Halloween, which apparently is a big event.

Overnight with @boyscoutsofamerica Troop 25 at the 4-H Camp in Pomfret. The toboggan run was hairy! I just watched. #boyscouts That moment when @trailrunningmom discovered that our longtime #Christmas Tree 🌲 supplier is a regular student in her #yoga class. They previously hadn’t recognized each other when not wearing #yogini gear. It was great to hear how our farmer has improved her strength and flexibility since she took over the business from her late husband. Note: preparing our menorah for #hannukah takes less work than this! Lovely December day for #Cyclocross at Goddard Park. @nbx_bikes #nbxcx @vittoriaseries #teamhorstsports #teamhorstjuniorsquad @horsteng #crossspikes #rhodeisland Lovely day for more than 130 #BoltonLandTrust members and friends at the annual Walk of #Thanksgiving #bolton #connecticut 🌲 #blackfriday didn’t start so badly! Great day at the #manchesterroadrace @shenipsitstriders #shenipsitstriders #silkcitystriders #teamhorstsports #thanksgiving 🏃🏻 If I always had the option to commute by train 🚂, I would take it. #multitasking 1h45m each way if uninterrupted productivity and NO driving. I even squeezed in a lap of #centralpark with Tim. 🏃🏻#manhattan #newyork Fir @john.meyerle because I neglected to post earlier: @supercross_cup This video is the Cat 4/5 Men. Great start for @the_ccap boys Nick and Johnny. #supercrosscx #teamhorstsports #teamhorstjuniorsquad #horstengineering #crossspikes @horsteng #cyclocross #lifedeathcyclocross Another great day at the @supercross_cup The #teamhorstjuniorsquad did great on the tricky and challenging course that was left muddy by overnight rain. The wind was fierce. The Junior 9-14 year olds did battle with the Category 4/5 Women. #teamhorstsports @vittoriaseries #supercrosscx #supercrosscup #horstengineering @horsteng #crossspikes #cyclocross
