Everyone: I have a copy of a 16 page black and white booklet (6 inches by 4 inches) titled THE ADIRONDACK...
There is a cover photo of three PA1 units 18,17 and either 16 or 19 pulling an at-least 8 car train around a slight curve...
Inside on Page 1 is a "Message to our Patrons:"
Welcome aboard The Adirondack on behalf of the train staff and my fellow employees of Delaware and Hudson, North America's oldest
continually operated transportation business firm.
Passenger train service over this scenic route of D&H through New York State's North Country has been re-instituted under the aegis of
the 1974 NYS Rail Freight and Passenger Service Preservation Program administered by the NYS Department of Transportation.
We at D&H are happy to be a part of this team effort to reinstitute a viable passenger train service over the shortest,fastest and most
scenic rail route between New York City and Montreal.
Because it can only be successful with your help, we hope that it meets with your continued support and patronage.
In that connection, any comments you have about our service will be most welcome and should be addressed to D&H Assistant VP-Service

Inside this booklet are 10 photographs that include a "through-the-rocks" picture at Willsboro and the stations at Lacolle,Quebec and
Montreal's Windsor Station - which is an older picture for the booklet's time (mid 70s) noting a Montreal street car in the foreground...
The center spread is a map of the Adirondack route with emphasis of the D&H's Albany-Montreal operational segment...
The text is about the route and stations served and includes historical information...
The back cover has three logos on it: Those of NYS DOT, the NYS Seal and the D&H's "Bridge Line to New England and Canada" herald...
There were two inserts: First - a two-sided Adirondack schedule dated April 27 and June 29,1975 along with this notation:
Last trip - Trains 34(N) and 35(S) June 28,1975 - and - First trip Trains 36(N) and 37(S) June 29,1975
The only mention of Amtrak anywhere was in this schedule's reference notes: "Tickets not available at station - Please purchase
from authorized Amtrak Travel Agent or Train Conductor" - Added is "Tickets May Be Purchased On The Train If Necessary"
There is no mention of Amtrak anywhere in the booklet itself...
The second insert was a yes or no questionnaire that asked these questions:
Was the train clean?
Was the train crew courteous?
Was the coach cool or warm enough?
Was the train on time?
Did you have any trouble getting tickets,schedules or information?
Were the rest rooms clean?
Was the service in the Dining Car adequate?
This insert was to be given to the D&H Conductor or Hostess and notes:
"Help us make The Adirondack an even better passenger train"
I have no scanning capability - the reason for noting some information about this booklet - and I will agree
that era's "The Adirondack" between Albany and Montreal was no doubt D&H's Passenger Train...
