Remarks & Notes 
The last autumn for this section of the Adirondack Scenic Railroad? Ex-PRR GP9 ADIX 6076 leads the 10:30 AM departure from Lake Placid, on its way to Saranac Lake as it approaches Route 86, with fall colors in full bloom. Unfortunately it looks like this will be the last autumn in which this, or any train operates on this section of track. The reason for that is that the state of New York has approved a plan to tear out the rails between Tupper Lake and Lake Placid and convert it to a hiking/snowmobile trail. While there are legal challenges to this plan, at the moment it still seems likely that the state's plan will go through and the tracks torn up starting next spring, if not earlier.
