Adirondack Division

The future of the Rail Explorers: Adirondack Division, which operated during 2015 and 2016 between Saranac Lake and Tupper Lake is uncertain. Although New York State's proposal to replace the railroad between Lake Placid and Tupper Lake with a multi-use trail was recently rejected by the Court, the State has indicated it will appeal the decision. At Rail Explorers we are hopeful that the State's short sighted and misguided plan can be defeated and that Rail Explorers can continue to offer tours along this spectacular historic railroad. Rail Explorers will not be operating in the Adirondacks during 2018, but hope to return in the future.

Delaware Division

Rail Explorers: Delaware Division, which operated alongside the Wilmington & Western Railroad in the spring of 2016 will not be available in 2017. We hope to return to Delaware in 2019.
