Caught the Empire Service train from Syracuse to Schenectady, then changed to the Adirondak train which took me north to Fort Edward. From there I caught a taxi to Lake George. These are pictures from the train trip.
The train runs along the Mohawk River which is used for power generation. It contains a series of locks which I think were part of the Erie Canal.
I had time to look around the very historic town of Schenecktady which played a big role in the American war of independence. It is also the home of General Electric. (sken-ek-ta-dy)
