Their regular schedule departs from Canandaigua and travels east to Clifton Springs. These trips run every Saturday, with an option to stay on board for the 2-hour round trip, or stay in Clifton Springs for lunch at Warfield's. You will then return on a later scheduled train.

If you'd like to board in Clifton Springs for a 2-hour round trip to Canandaigua, that's possible too!

The Seneca Falls boarding location is available for groups that want to travel on Wednesdays. This is a 12:30pm departure and is a 90-minute trip that goes over Cayuga Lake and through the tip of Montezuma Wildlife Refuge.

But Wait... There's More

We haven't even gotten to the big news yet!

According to local photographer John Kucko, The Finger Lakes Railway is working to get an excursion open and operating from Himrod, NY to Watkins Glen. This would provide some of the best views of Seneca Lake along the ride, something that hasn't been seen in almost a decade.

The excursion would allow for wine tours, themed rides, and so much more. They are estimating the project would take roughly two years to complete. But the wait will be worth it for the fun in store on the railways.
