Saturday & Sunday, May 6 & 7, 2023

Adirondack Railroad, NY

Car limit: 40
Excursion fee: $420
RT Mile(s): 300
EC: Keith Knowlton and the NEREX team

Join NEREX ECs Keith Knowlton, Gordy Wallick along with the rest of the NEREX Team on a 3 day 300 mile spring excursion on our host railroads; the Mohawk, Adirondack & Northern and the Adirondack.
Early seton will be at Remsen Depot Thursday afternoon with overnight security provided. After any Friday morning setons we will be departing south to Utica on the MA&N. We will turn the cars at Utica and return to Remsen for lunch. (Please bring your own lunch Friday). We will then head north to Booneville where we will turn again for the trip back to Remsen. At Remsen we will NOT setoff, but rather turn the cars and head north 30 miles to Thendara for the rest of the weekend. A bus will bring drivers back to Remsen to pick up tow vehicles after our arrival at Thendara. Anyone wishing to have their passenger get off at Remson and drive north to Thendara may do so.
Saturday we will head south mid morning 30 miles to Snow Junction with a bathroom stop at the Buffalo Head Restaurant. We'll turn the cars and run back to the Buffalo Head for the NEREX included main meal of the day; turkey, roast beef, or fish fry, after which we'll return to Thendara. About 7 Saturday evening we'll depart to the north for a 20 mile sunset/night run to Big Moose and back.
Sunday we'll go north 56 miles to Tupper Lake where we'll have NEREX included lunch at the depot and then back to Thendara for setoff. Total mileage for the weekend will be approximatly 300 and there is a 40 car limit. No trains or railbikes will be operating and the 85 miles of track from Snow Junction to Tupper Lake is brand new class 3 rail so it should be a great ride.
Keep in mind that this is early spring in northern New York and it might be darn chilly, which is the price we pay for having the rails all to ourselves. Also, I have been told that, depending on the weather, we might have black flies to deal with as well. Mosquito netting has been suggested.
