I videoed Adirondack Scenic's Utica-Thendara, NY run yesterday catching the train both northbound and southbound in Forestport, approx 33 miles north of Utica.

Here's the link:

Also, grabbed this photo of No. 1502 leading its train over the Mohawk River, Utica, at the beginning of its run north.

Thank you for posting these videos of this beautiful railroad.

Part of it is exempted because the owning entity, the State of New York, has allegedly never invested the money promised for it, but where the money has been spent, there is one really nice railroad, with track in some sections that have decent speeds available--in this case, a stretch of about 10 miles between Remsen and Otter Lake at 45 mph:
