Adirondack Scenic Railroad Locomotive Damaged

on Wednesday, 16 October 2013.

The locomotive of the Adirondack Scenic Railroad that operates between Lake Placid and Saranac Lake has been damaged.


David Link, director of Adirondack Railroad volunteers, told the Adirondack Daily Enterprise that several wires inside the train's electrical cabinet were pulled out, cut and placed back into the cabinet sometime last week.


The railroad crew discovered something was wrong when the train failed to pass a routine safety inspection before going into service last Wednesday, but it took a few days to discover the source of the problem. No damage was detectable from outside the train.


Link said that repairs could cost up to $50,000, not including lost revenue, and he called the damage deliberate. Federal Railway Administration officials are expected to conduct their own investigation.
