Due to a water-leak, the 821 needs some help getting back to North Creek.  Have no fear, the staff will have her out of the shop in no time!

This week was a big week for the Saratoga & North Creek Railroad.  A run was made north of North Creek for the first time in over 20 years.  Here are some photos of the Inspection train that was run to the Barton Mines Processing Plant on Hudson River Plant Road, in the Town of Indian Lake on August 8, 2012.  John Sesonske caught the special run!

At MP SL24 which is the 2nd Rt 28 crossing just north of North River, this is also milepost NC5. This is Hamilton County, Town of Indian Lake.  SNC Caboose 1001 shines in her new paint!

Thanks to Brad and John for providing these great shots!
