The Adirondack Railroad announced it is again offering unique trips that chase away the winter blahs. Many hundreds of area residents and visitors enjoyed these adventures last year.
Beginning January 22, 2023, the very popular Cabin Fever Train will leave Utica Union Station at 11 AM, travel to Remsen, and return by 1 PM. At the Remsen Depot passengers will be able to enjoy a warm fire, hot chocolate, and s’mores. “This service is an opportunity for families and friends to get together and break away from the dreariness that often happens at this time of year,” said General Manager Frank Kobliski. The Cabin Fever Train will also operate on January 28th, February 5th and 19th, March 4th and 25th, and April 2nd.
In February the Adirondack Valentine’s Day Dinner Train is an opportunity for couples to celebrate in a special way. A complimentary drink and a special menu, handcrafted by local chef Pat O’Connor, owner of Feasts and Festivities by O’Connor, help create a romantic and memorable experience. This service is offered on February 10th, 11th, and 14th. The departure from Union Station in Utica is at 6 PM going to Remsen Depot and returning by 9 PM. The menu selection can be made when tickets are purchased.
“A change of scenery, even for a few hours, is a nice escape welcomed by last year’s passengers,” Mr. Kobliski added.” We hope you will come and enjoy yourselves.”
