Remsen, NY

I was headed north today for a party and was early with time on my hands. I pulled off of the main road and into the small village of Remsen. The area had a large population of Welsh immigrants and the village has an on-going relationship with Wales. There is an exhibit in the historical society funded by the Welsh government. At one point it was a rail junction for three different lines coming from Utica into the Adirondacks and the Adirondack Scenic Railway still passes through here on its way to Thendara, stopping here for passengers.

In 1964 the Remsen station was torn down and rebuilt in 2000, including repairs to the yard and water tower.

There are also rail cars (caboose and flat car) restored and on display.

In the yard is an old passenger car in a sad state. I don't know if they have plans to restore it or not. The Adirondack Scenic Railroad has restored several cars for their line.

As I was driving into town I found this interesting building.

And after I left there I drove up the "line" a ways and found another station, this one is the original, but restored Woodgate Station. It is now a private residence owned by a volunteer from the Adirondack Scenic Railway.
