  • I've taken many trips on this railroad, typically a few times a year since they started in 2011. Always a superb experience and first class service and vintage railroad equipment. The crew was always top notch, friendly and professional. One of the many things I enjoyed was the beautiful scenery otherwise not accessible by any other means. The fall foliage rides and winter snow train runs are my favorite. I love seeing families enjoying the trip, especially grandparents and their young grandchildren. The kids are all excited about riding on the "big train". A lot of seniors too enjoy the beautiful scenery which could only be enjoyed by train rather than a hiking trail. I'm grateful to both the Saratoga & North Creek Railroad and the counties of Corinth and Warren for keeping one of the few working rail lines up and running for all to enjoy. I hope to take the dinner train next summer. Sammy
  • My husband and I went to North Creek by this railway, which was my first in 65 years of living rail travel. What a wonderful time. Our conductor made us welcome and all the staff was friendly and helpful. Sit up top if your can; it was fall and what a beautiful, unique trip of the northern part of NY state. Do go visit the antique store on Main Street, just up past the wonderful bakery.
