The Adirondack ran with all heritage equipment in the late 90s, which included a full baggage car, former “Clocker” coaches and a Lounge, such as the one seen here. Renamed “L’Auberge Laurentien” for use in this service, this car was originally built for the Santa Fe. It is decorated with a decent size Adirondack logo, whereas the coaches had a smaller version in the white stripe.

Westbound Amtrak No. 69, the “Adirondack,” passes through Manitou, NY on Sept. 20, 1994 with FL9 No. 486.

Amtrak 68, the SB Adirondack, is taking the connector from CPF-485 on the Canadian Pacific to the Conrail Chicago Line as EB train CP 310 holds on the CP main for Amtrak to clear. The time is approx. 5:16 PM This is the point where the Adirondack transfers from CP trackage (former D&H) to Conrail (CSX today) trackage on its journey from Montreal to NYC. The Schenectady Amtrak station is directly behind me. 310 is just a few miles from its destination of Mohawk Yard and a Guilford connection after originating in Buffalo. Power for 310 is two GATX ex MP-UP SD40-2 lessors, 2007 and 2009 plus CP RS18u 1810. The GATX #2007 later became CP #5429 and GATX #2009 later became CP #5431. The tracks in the foreground are the Conrail Chicago Line. CP changed the symbol on 310 to 270 at a later date.

Shortly after CP’s take over of the D&H in the Fall of 1990, the much anticipated arrival of 6 axle MLW’s was occurring. On one of the first weekends of operation on the old D&H, three 6 axle MLW’s are parked on the head end of 556 waiting for a crew change to head south. Amtrak #69, The Adirondack, with it’s then standard RTL-I Turbo set, kicks up the snow as it rolls by NB on the main.
