RS 3
Title:  RS 3
Description:  The Adirondack RR restored service on the former NYC Adirondack Division for the 1980 Lake Placid Olympics, games that were notable for the US hockey teams upset win over the Soviets. By 1981, the line had become largely defunct as a going concern, and the equipment was all laid up at Thendara. Here we see the RS 3s that powered the Utica to Lake Placid trains the year before. Thirty years later, the Adirondack Scenic is making a come back on the line, resotring track that had largely gone back to nature, and developing a growing rider base.
