This blog highlights some of my adventures with the focus on railroad history. Originally intended as a blog of my rail trail rides, it now also includes hikes, railroad trips and even stop-and-go car trips if they are railroad history related...

Schenectady Train Station

While briefly upstate on family business, I grabbed the opportunity to visit the new Schenectady Train Station. Nice job Amtrak!
Some great history tidbits in the back

  1. Wow! this looks great! I haven't lived in the area since 1982. If I remember correctly the first little Amtrak building was there when I left. I saw pictures on You Tube with grafitti sprayed all over it. This station is a big plus for rail travel to and from Schenectady! I just found this blog - by the looks of things I might be on it all night! Thanks! Chip Ruhl, Williamsport, PA
