Adirondack train debate continues

Listen to this story
Two more local governments have weighed in on the future of the historic rail line that runs through the heart of the Adirondack Park.

At a meeting last week in Tupper Lake, the village board voted four to one, in favor of reopening a management plan that governs use of the rail corridor from Old Forge to Lake Placid.

The village joins a growing number of communities and county governments in the North Country that want New York state to consider other uses for the rail bed, including a multi-use trail.

Supporters of the Adirondack Scenic railroad oppose reopening debate over the plan and say they hope to see tourist trains operating on the route in the next few years.

The railroad won support for their plan last week from the city council in Utica, which voted nine to zero, in favor of maintaining the tracks.
