Re: Saratoga & North Creek (S&NC) Discussion

Thank you.

And hat's off to the benefactors.

I am curious why the county permits the D&H 5019 and derelict passenger car to remain there.
Not county owned track-age, or does the county own that equipment?

Re: Saratoga & North Creek (S&NC) Discussion

The line is currently sitting unused with the exception of the rail-bike operation out of North River. That operation appears to be be quite popular. I passed through North Creek yesterday and was surprised to see the caboose that was previously used by the S & NC and the Upper Hudson River Railroad...

Re: Unusual Fleet Sightings and Freight Movements on MNRR

Amtrak locomotive spotted this morning in Dover Plains (Upper Harlem) pushing mini-bomb south. It appeared that the locomotive #'s had been recently stenciled over. I believe it was stenciled as 216. I was so surprised to see the Amtrak unit I lost my focus. Q: Where are the BL 20's that are typical...

Re: Saratoga & North Creek (S&NC) Discussion

I was driving through North Creek yesterday and stopped at the station. There are 3 boxcars parked at the station. I asked a couple of the workers what the boxcars were for. Their response "We're packing up everything and leaving". They said everything is being pulled out and heading to other IP own...

Re: Saratoga & North Creek (S&NC) Discussion

Well, I called that one. Follow the money. The Adirondack Almanac web site is reporting that the NY State Comptrollers office threatened to pull the NY State pension funds that that were invested in Berkshire Hathaway, a substantial sum, unless the stored tank cars were removed. Bingo. Dirty politic...

Re: Saratoga & North Creek (S&NC) Discussion

The Adirondack Almanack web site is reporting that the Union Tank Car Company has requested that the 65 tank cars currently stored on the S & NC be shipped back. Looks like someone at the state level got to the right person at Berkshire Hathaway. Follow the money, I say. The Adirondack Almanack has ...

Re: Saratoga & North Creek (S&NC) Discussion

Regarding the article in today's NY Times, it appears that Peter Bauer and the photographer are trespassing on private property. Mr. Bauer is Executive Director of Protect the Adirondacks! Their motto is "Legacy, Leadership, Vision", yet Protect the Adirondacks continues to spread falsehoods and hyp...

Re: 2017 Amtrak Autumn Express foliage excursion

There is some dude streaming live to you tube riding in the 9800 Conference car.
He seems to be by himself back there.
His commentary is childish, he doesn't even know where the train is, and he has zero sense of geography.
How did HE get the privilege of riding in the 9800 ?

Re: Saratoga & North Creek (S&NC) Discussion - 2015

I sincerely hope that the S&NC closes this transaction and that freight starts moving. ATT : Phil Brown Peter Bauer John W. Caffry Tony Godwin Godspeed to the S&NC. They have been "up-front", unlike the phony trespassers. I will NEVER contribute again to NCPR. If I am banned from this forum for this...

Re: Saratoga & North Creek (S&NC) Discussion - 2015

The Saratoga bound consist was 4 cars, 2 domes and 2 ex-LIRR bi-levels. Not sure about the where the domes started their life, I do believe they spent some time in Alaska.
I did notice HEP jumpers between all 4 cars, but no jumpers between locomotive and head car.

Re: Saratoga & North Creek (S&NC) Discussion - 2015

I stopped by North Creek yesterday and caught the afternoon Saratoga train boarding passengers. The (2) F40's were on the point. Neither unit was in HEP mode. HEP was being supplied to the consist from one of the domes. An employee told me that the plan is to eventually use the F40's for HEP. They s...

Re: Adirondack Scenic Railroad (ADIX) Discussion - 2014

Obviously, most everyone who posts here, and lurks here, has a passion for the ADK division. Myself included. I have fond memories of my grandfather taking the train in the late 50's and early 60's from Saranac Lake to GCT and back. The ADK division is living history, an asset, and a potential econo...

Re: Saratoga & North Creek (S&NC) Discussion - 2014

I stopped by North Creek on my drive home yesterday and spoke with a gentleman who works for the S&NC. He said that the #56 was parked in the engine house, still in primer. RS 36 used by UHRR still on property, S&NC would like to acquire it at some point. As far as freight, they are not moving anyth...

Re: Saratoga & North Creek (S&NC) Discussion - 2014

I stop by the North Creek depot & yard about once a month as I travel through the area. I haven't seen the 56 in a while. The last time I saw 56 it was parked outside the engine house still in primer. It might be in the engine house. I have seen no obvious signs of anything being shipped out, no fre...

Re: Saratoga & North Creek (S&NC) Discussion - 2014

I stopped by the North Creek depot on Saturday morning, noticed all the out of state pick-up trucks, many with RR Vanity plates, and with trailers parked at the depot..hmmmmm, something is up. The only speeder I saw was marked S&NC parked near the depot. I checked this site, checked the S&NC site, n...
