  In 1871, a sixty mile railroad line was completed from Saratoga Springs to North Creek, New York, creating an important link with the Adirondack Mountains.
   Started in 1863 by Dr. Thomas C. Durant, a leading figure in the Union Pacific Railroad, it was first named the Adirondack Company. In 1881 it was sold to his son, William West Durant, and renamed The Adirondack Railway Company. In 1902 it merged with the Delaware and Hudson Railroad to become the Adirondack Branch.
  Today, the railroad is being revived through scenic passenger rides with the Saratoga & North Creek Railway and the development of new freight traffic. Don't miss your chance to ride the scenic rails along the upper Hudson River.
   Come explore this site to learn its fascinating history. In addition to the facts and photographs, there are also many scale drawings available of stations and other structures for those making scale models.
