Lake Placid, December 2014: What’s Wrong With This Picture?

Yes, it is an empty train station? The village of Lake Placid is a booming tourist town. There are many sporting events here like a World Cup luge race. So where is the train that could connect to Amtrak in Utica, New York and bring visitors and sports participants to Lake Placid? Yes, it exists; it is called the Adirondack Scenic Railroad. But it needs “permission” from the State of New York in order to run between Thendara and Sarnac Lake.
