Adirondack tourism trains cut schedules

The Glens Falls Post Star is reporting that the tourism training serving the Gore Mountain area around North Creek will reduce its operations this summer.

The Saratoga and North Creek Railway has operated 7 days a week in past years. This summer, it will make runs four days a week, Friday through Monday.

A spokesman told the railroad that the runs were cut back after they analyzed mid-week ridership.

The Adirondack Scenic Railroad which operates in Lake Placid and Saranac Lake also reduced its schedule this summer, canceling trips in May and June.

[Correction: The original version of this story that aired on NCPR said that the train in Saranac Lake had reduced its schedule "this month."]

According to the Adirondack Daily Enteprise, those cut-backs occurred because of track repairs and poor early season ridership.

The newspaper also reported that the opening was delayed again for at least a day this week because of a malfunctioning piece of track equipment.
