Rhinecliff Train Station Is A Station With A View

I get many calls for the train station at Rhinecliff also known as the Rhinebeck train station here is the number.
Tel # 845-876-2729     Train website

This station is perched on a hill above the Hudson River and does offer a great view of both the river and Catskill Mountains.  With an overpass  over the rail line you can walk or drive down to the waterfront.  It is also located just a a block from the  Rhinecliff Hotel.

Public transportation is always of concern to local government.  Most of Dutchess County is served by Metro-North Trains, The Hudson line along the Hudson River and The Harlem Line in the Northeastern part of the County.  In Northern Dutchess we do not have Metro-North Trains,  instead, we are served by Amtrak from the Rhinecliff Station in the town of Rhinebeck. The trip to Manhattan will take you about 1hr. and 40 mins.

Amtrak service is certainly more expensive than that of Metro-North however many commute  from here daily to New York City's Penn Station.  This station is also used by many New Yorkers to get to their country homes as well as by faculty and students of Bard College. It is also a quick way to take a day trip to Rhinebeck.  You might also need to travel further north, the Amtrak can take you all the way to Canada.  Here are the four available routes:

Empire Service
Ethan Allen Express

JENNIFER, I love seeing these active train stations.  We have lots of depots here that have been restored but they are no longer in use as an actual train station.  Now we have plenty of freight trains; I'm constantly waiting on trains.  In the 11 years of living here I have NEVER seen a passenger train..

Jennifer, this is so romantic a train station with a view. Seems like you could write a novel around it.

Jennifer I hate waiting but with a view like that even I might not mind siting around waiting for the next train.

Marchel - I find it rather interesting, on my side of the river are the passenger train, I suspect because the estates were concentrated on this side.  On the other side you get all the freight.

Gary - Someone might, it is unlikely I would.

Lanre - The view is truly awesome.

George - That is a great way of looking at the situation.  Good to see you, so how is the summer going?

Jennifer, people could take a day trip up from New York and go to the fair!  What a treat for city kids who never get to see real farm animals!
