Am­trak back on track af­ter chal­leng­ing week

Albany Times Union - Sunday - - BUSINESS -

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.
