2009 Convention: Finger Lakes Railway Excursion

Please be prepared for all day trip. This ride will cover the former NYC Auburn Road, or as the railroad men called it, “The Old Road,” since it was the orginal NYC mainline. Trip will depart from Geneva at 8:00am, where we will travel by motorcoach to Canandaigua. We will board the train at Canandaigua and ride through to just outside Syacuse. Finger Lakes Railway will provide a snack car that will be stocked with light refreshments. The train will terminate opposite the New York Stat Fairgrounds, where you’ll have an opportunity to disembark and inspect the railroad equipment on display (maintained by Central New York Chapter NRHS). From the Fairgrounds, we will board buses for the return trip to Geneva, arriving in time for the Banquet.
