After reviewing the evidence, a state Supreme Court Justice has sided with the Adirondack Scenic Railroad and rejected New York State’s rail-trail plan.
Over the past few years, one of the most heavily discussed issues in the Adirondacks has been New York State’s plan to remove 34 miles of rail line along the historic Adirondack Scenic Railroad and construct a rail-trail. The Adirondack Rail Preservation Society (ARPS), issued a lawsuit against multiple NY State departments in response to the plan, citing a number of issues.
Now, after reviewing evidence presented by both sides, acting state Supreme Court Justice Robert Main has sided with the ARPS and annulled New York State’s plan for the Adirondack rail trail.
