New York Tourist RR to Get Amtrak Dining Car

A New York tourist railroad has acquired a former Amtrak dining car.

The Adirondack Scenic Railroad has received a Heritage fleet diner that was once New York Central lounge car No. 463.

Railroad officials said that car would have traveled through Utica, New York, where the ASR is based, and perhaps traveled over ASR tracks to Lake Placid, New York.

Amtrak agreed to donate the car to the ASR because of its history. Several other railroads were also interested in acquiring the car.

The car is expected to arrive on the ASR sometime in May.
