National Geographic dubbed this train route as one of the “top 10 scenic train rides in the world”. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the train was temporarily discontinued. Now, after three years it is all set to return in 2023. It resumed in part in December but it only journeyed to Albany. However, the train will fully resume in 2023. This particular train ride is famous for the views it offers of the Adirondack mountains.
