Last Of The Snow Trains


Due to flooding on the Upper Hudson River, The Saratoga And North Creek Railroad was only able to run a shortened Snow-Train Schedule.  Trains were due to run January through April.  The last train will be Saturday, April 7th...

Saturday,  March 10 was the second Snow-Train  run on the S&NC.  What was originally going to be a round trip to North Creek, was shortened  to Thurman, NY (Warrensburg).  Power was IP 4135 and 4137...


The 4137 heads North to Thurman.


Northbound at the Stoney Creek Curve.


Arriving at Thurman Station


Running around at Thurman Station with the 4135 now in the lead.


Now South-bound, leaving Thurman for Saratoga Springs.  Ice-chunks can be seen on the River in the background.


Here a great shot of the South-bound leaving Thurman.


Heading south to Stoney Creek Ranch.

A big thanks to Greg Klingler for sharing his snow-train photos!  Hopefully there is more to come...
