September 18, 2015

ALBANY, N.Y. – Passengers aboard Amtrak’s Adirondack service can experience the splendor of Upstate New York’s fall foliage season in unique fashion when the full-length dome car returns for a six-week run Sept. 24 through Nov. 3, 2015.

In partnership with the New York State Department of Transportation and the National Park Service Trails and Rails program, Amtrak brings its sole remaining dome car back for this popular annual tradition along one of the most scenic train routes in the world.Website Insert Passenger Trains Very Well copy

The former Great Northern “Great Dome” car features an upper level with windows on all sides to provide panoramic views of the changing colors of the trees, sweeping vistas of Lake Champlain and breathtaking views of the Adirondack Mountains between Albany and Montreal.

“The ‘Great Dome’ car is one of the best and most unique ways to experience the magnificent scenery along the route of the Adirondack,” says Kevin Chittenden, Amtrak’s deputy general manager of the Empire Service. “The car is a passenger favorite every year and helps contribute to the ridership and revenue growth that make this service so successful.”
