All Railbikes Were Proudly Made Right Here In Utica, Ny! 🇺🇸
The Railroad Needs You!
We need your help to keep the railroad functioning during these difficult times. There are many ways to help our organization – by donating to our general fund, joining as a member, or volunteering. Although the Adirondack Railroad Preservation Society (ARPS) supports our operation via ticket sales, we are currently unable to run trains, including our popular Polar Express, during this pandemic. Your tax-deductible donations will help us maintain our fleet of both trains and rail bikes, further equipment restoration projects, prepare for next season’s trips from both Utica and Thendara (Old Forge), and much more.

The Adirondack Railway Preservation Society (ARPS), operator of the Adirondack Scenic Railroad and Adirondack Scenic Railbikes, aims to preserve and restore rail service between the High Peaks region, Central New York, and beyond via rail connections in Utica.
ARPS partners with communities and businesses along the line to promote the railway as an economic development driver while offering historic and environmental education opportunities.
Our vision includes expanding rail and coordinated trail-based offerings, allowing for people of all ages and physical capacities to traverse remote areas of the Adirondack Park.
