The Adirondack Scenic Railroad has named a new interim executive director after the resignation of Jack Roberson.

Justin Gonyo, of North Creek, was appointed for the interim position by ASR Board of Directors President Bill Branson.

The organization says that in an email to the Board of Directors, Roberson left because of a “difference in management styles.”

Gonyo comes with a lifetime background in railroads, most recently as general manager of the Saratoga & North Creek Railroad and with his own company, Hudson Consulting & Project Management, LLC.

The railroad is also promising new experiences with the addition of new rolling stock.

Branson says Amtrak has generously gifted the railroad a recently retired dining car, which adds to a former Union Pacific dome car the organization bought.

The dome car is expected to be delivered in the fall, but the dining car is expected sometime in June.

“These 2 historic cars will add a whole new dimension to our rail operations,” at the board meeting, ASR Vice-President Frank Kobliski stated.

The railroad offerings will continue as scheduled, including the Polar Express.
