Empire Service Route

Amtrak Route Description

The following has been extracted from Amtrak’s “Empire Service” Route Description.

“Amtrak’s Empire Service provides convenient service throughout the Empire State.”

“With frequent daily trains between NYC and Albany (and others that continue to Buffalo and Niagara Falls), business and leisure travel has never been easier.”

“You can do almost anything in New York City, but when it’s time to get out in the country, head north to the Hudson River Valley for a vacation in the wine country. Take the Empire Service to the Finger Lakes region or continue all the way to Buffalo and Niagara Falls.”

The approximate rail travel distance between New York City and Niagra Falls on Train 283 is 460 miles and the rail travel time is about 9 hours and 45 minutes.
