Sneak Peek: A new, luxury way to travel to the Adirondacks

By WKTV News

UTICA, N.Y. (WKTV) - The Adirondack Scenic Railroad is offering trips on its new historic railroad car from the 1920's. The Pullman car, which was then converted to a business car in the 1940's, has three bedrooms and bathrooms, a dining room, sitting room, and kitchen.

It can house 10 people and sleep 6.

The railroad company is hoping to attract people from out of town to rent out the car for a night.

"Hopefully people will enjoy the Adirondacks," said Jay McFarland, Station Master. "You just don't get this in the East. This is the only place in the East. We are hoping to get some people from London to come here to experience this when they come from New York City. "Instead of going straight to Niagara Falls they can stop here in Utica."

The railroad company will drive the business car up to the Adirondacks where it will stay for the night and then head home the next day.

Renting the business car out for the night begins at $1,000.
