New York Railroads

Whether you are traveling to Albany for business, Niagara Falls for fun, New York City for shopping, the Finger Lakes for wine tasting, or the Adirondack North Country for skiing, you can arrive refreshed and relaxed, even when New York's famous snow is falling, aboard a train!

New York by Rail can help you plan your amazing adventure aboard Amtrak! Amtrak's Empire Service travels through the Hudson Highlands, past historic West Point and along the legendary Catskill Mountains. Beyond Albany the train follows the old Mohawk Trail (a historic Native American travel route) across upstate New York's business corridor to the wine country of the Finger Lakes region and ends with Niagara Falls.

The history and beauty of the pristine Adirondacks come to life aboard The Adirondack, Amtrak’s scenic service from the Hudson Valley through the Champlain Valley to Montreal.

There are currently three separate commuter railroads operating in the New York metropolitan area: the Long Island Railroad (from Penn Station and Grand Central Terminal), Metro-North Railroad (from Grand Central Terminal), and New Jersey Transit (from Penn Station). All three offer a variety of stops throughout Long Island, the Hudson Valley, and New York City.
