ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Amtrak is again running its “Great Dome” car between Albany and Montreal during leaf-peeping season.

The car features an upper level with windows on all sides to provide panoramic views of Lake Champlain and the eastern edge of the Adirondack Mountains. Amtrak says the car will run for six weeks beginning next Thursday, Sept. 24.

Amtrak is running the program in partnership with the state Department of Transportation and the National Park Service Trails and Rails program.

The dome car will run north from Albany on Thursdays, Saturdays and Mondays. It will run south from Montreal on Fridays, Sundays, and Tuesdays.
