Discover New York by Traveling Amtrak

Fourth Annual New York by Rail® Guide Uncovers Best of Empire State

NEW YORK – Amtrak is once again teaming up with the communities it serves throughout New York to spotlight the endless opportunities for travel across the Empire State with the release of the fourth annual New York By Rail® publication.

Not including Amtrak’s busiest station, New York City’s Penn Station, more than 1.5 million passengers traveled on Amtrak through New York State last year, including the Hudson Valley region, Western and Central New York and the Adirondack region. New York By Rail is the resource a visitor needs to make the most of their travel experience through the state. User-friendly information about getting around each destination makes it easy for anyone to take off on a day or weekend trip and is an indispensable tool for planning a full vacation touring New York State.

“This guide has proven as a valuable resource for New York residents and visitors alike,” said Mike DeCataldo, General Superintendent, and Northeast Division. “Our partnership with the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets and its contribution to this year’s publication has certainly enhanced our efforts to both inform our passengers about the travel and vacationing options in the Empire Region, and how reaching these destinations by riding Amtrak is now easier than ever.”

This year’s New York By Rail guide features for the first time a special supplement from New York State’s Department of Agriculture and Markets. This insert gives visitors options to explore rural New York and its numerous intriguing destinations that showcase the state’s thriving agricultural activities. New York State Agriculture Commissioner Patrick Hooker said, “Working together with Amtrak, we invite you to visit New York’s vast countryside. With agriculture occupying more than a quarter of the state’s total land mass, there is plenty to see and do. From dairy farms to apple orchards, vineyards, farmers’ markets, country fairs and corn mazes- New York agriculture has something for everyone. “

The 2007 edition of New York By Rail is now available at Amtrak Stations, on board Amtrak trains operating throughout New York State and participating travel agents, tour operators, New York information centers, as well as hotels and attractions near Amtrak stations. Amtrak customers may also request one when purchasing their tickets at or 1-800-USA-RAIL.
