UTICA – Bethan Maher, executive director of the Adirondack Rail Preservation Society, which operates the Adirondack Scene Railroad, is leaving the position for a new one in the Pacific Northwest.

Maher has accepted a new position with the American Heritage Railways to head up the Mount Rainier Railroad and Logging Museum in Washington State, the ARPS announced today.

According to Bill Branson, president of the ARPS, the search for new leadership has already begun.

“Bethan has made an enormous contribution to the success of the Adirondack Scenic Railroad,” Branson said in a news release. “This new challenge is a compliment to Bethan’s work ethic and the success she has helped to make happen in our operations in the Mohawk Valley and the Adirondacks.”

“This significant promotion and career opportunity that I have accepted is a result of the tremendous support and effort by members of the Board of Directors, the staff and the huge cadre of volunteers who give time and talent to ARPS and the Adirondack Scenic Railroad,” Maher said in the release.

Maher has served as executive director for the ARPS since 2012.
