Amtrak back on track after challenging week
It was a tough week for Amtrak across upstate New York, with track congestion, weather and mechanical issues all contributing to delays and cancellations.
Many of the delays occurred west of Utica but affected the Capital Region.
Locomotive mechanical issues on Wednesday forced the cancellation of the Adirondack in both directions between Albany and Montreal, as well as another train from Niagara Falls to New York City.
A replacement train operated from Albany to New York City.
There were some other cancellations as well.
This, just a few days after two cars of the southbound Adirondack detached from the rest of the train between Rensselaer and Hudson.
Things were back to normal by Friday.
