Amtrak Route Description
The following route description has been extracted from Amtrak's "Adirondack Route Guide".
"Welcome aboard Amtrak's Adirondack. More than 140 years ago, the Delaware & Hudson began service through Upstate New York. Today, Amtrak's Adirondack carries on the nostalgic and romantic service from the Hudson Valley through the Champlain Valley to Montreal, showcasing the history and scenic beauty of the region along the way. During your journey, you will travel through the wine country of the Hudson Valley and the idyllic Adirondack Mountains, and also by the shoreline of Lake Champlain for 50 miles or so. This valuable train service is financed in part through funds made available by the New York State Department of Transportation. So please, relax and enjoy your trip aboard the Adirondack.

"... Heading north, you're scheduled to depart New York's Penn Station in the morning and arrive in Montreal in the evening. Or, board the southbound train anywhere along the line and arrive in mid-town Manhattan in time to enjoy dinner and nightlife in New York City."
The rail travel distance between Montreal and New York City via the Adirondack is about 380 miles and the rail travel time is a little over 11 hours.
