A victory in court today for the Adirondack Scenic Railroad.

State Supreme Court Justice Robert Main ruled that the state's plan to remove a portion of the Remsen-Lake Placid railroad line was "arbitrary and  capricious."

Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi is applauding the decision.

Brindisi says officials with the Adirondack Scenic Railroad have been in limbo for a long time and this ruling allows them to proceed with plans for a Utica to Lake Placid railroad line.

"Throughout this debate, it has been my belief that there are many excellent opportunities for hiking, snowmobiling, and other outdoor activities in the Adirondacks, and that having a railroad traveling north from Utica to the High Peaks region will bring more visitors to the Adirondacks, and will help boost its economy" said Brindisi.
