Returning for another year with two special trips is Amtrak’s Autumn Express excursion. The excursion departs from New York Penn station on October 14 and 15 and is perfect for travelers looking to see the changing leaves and beautiful fall landscapes of the Hudson River Valley. The historic train will ride along a route that hasn’t seen regular passenger service in decades, treating travelers to stunning scenery along its scenic path. After departing from New York, the train will pass underneath the Hudson River and stop in Newark, New Jersey, allowing more passengers to board. The train will then switch from electric to diesel poser and change direction, heading towards Jersey City with a glimpse of the New York Harbor before traveling north.
The Autumn Express excursion will eventually reach the west bank of the Hudson River, just below Haverstraw, where passenger trains have not run in years. In addition to the beautiful fall leaves, passengers will also catch a glimpse of historic landmarks, including Bear Mountain Bridge, Storm King Mountain, the US Military Academy, and the Poughkeepsie Bridge. The small communities of Catskill, Athens, and Ravena will be passed, before the train descends onto the Amtrak Hudson line for a scenic 112-mile stretch down the east shore of the Hudson River.
