Stop by the 13th Annual Caboose Day & Car Show event on Aug. 12 from 10 a.m.—3 p.m. It is a great opportunity to grab lunch and view two historic treasures: the caboose and Kings Station train depot. The free event will take place at Kings Station Park, 4000 Route 9N.
Participate or vote in the car show featuring all kinds of trucks, cars and motorcycles. There will be many vendors and a bake sale. Lunch is freshly grilled hot dogs, hamburgers and French fries. Historians will be on site, some dressed in classic train conductor attire.
Train Ride Options
One fun option is to arrive to the event via a scenic 7-mile, 2 1/2 hour ride aboard the Saratoga Corinth & Hudson Railway. The train departs Corinth at 9:30 a.m. or 12:30 p.m. and drops off at King’s Station. A trolley is available to transport from the station to the event or it is a 5-minute walk. Book rides here.
Additional 45-minute train rides will be offered at the event from 11-2 p.m. on a real caboose or open air car. (The cost is $5 kids/$10 adults).
