Mohawk, Adirondack & Northern loaned Adirondack engine No. 2456 (ALCo C425 blt 10/64) for use on the tourist hauler's Oct 2 & 3 Utica-Thendara runs. The MA&N engine teamed-up with Adirondack No. 1835.

This video captures activity on both days, including in a few new locations for me (the Utica Marsh and Pit Four in Forestport):

The Adirondack used MA&N power for its Oct 9 & 10 Utica-Thendara trips, specifically Nos. 2453 & 2042. This video captures activity on both Oct 9 & 10 in Forestport and includes a bit of NY Central history as well:

I rode in the dome car on the Oct 16 Utica-Thendara run (104 miles r/t). This video includes pre-boarding scenes in Utica (including two CSX freights and the arrival of Amtrak 280), views in the dome car, a peek inside the Thendara engine house and a look at its present occupant, NY Central RS-3 8255, and, unfortunately, the sad scene of a railroad "graveyard" in Thendara:

Saw an Instagram post noting that former CN/Maine Eastern M420W 3573 has been acquired by Adirondack Scenic.
