The heart of Downtown Troy. Cars of the Schenectady Railway, United Traction and Hudson Valley all met here. You could reach all parts of the Capital District from this point.

Franklin Square. A Saratoga Car is first on the left.

River Street, Downtown Troy

Here's the line between Mechanicville and Schuylerville. Today this would be Route 32

Here's the bridge over Fish Creek in Schuylerville. The car is coming from Schuylerville and heading to Mechanicville

 

Here's the stone arches at Willow Glen. This was located between Mechanicville and Round Lake. Some remains of the arches can be seen from the Right-of-way of the Delaware and Hudson which the trolley line crossed.

Here's the Round Lake Depot. This depot was located right at the current intersection of Route 9 and Maltaville.

Here's another shot of the station. From here the line went to Ballston Spa.

Here's the famous Hudson Valley Station in downtown Saratoga. The station remains to this day as the Saratoga Springs visitor Center.

Here's an open car crossing the Ondawa Gorge near Middle Falls. Several fatalities occurred here due to the height of the trestle and no were for trespassers to go.

Here's Downtown Ballston Spa. Not much has changed of this view. The Medberry Spa is in the background on the right.

Here's Milton Ave. IN Ballston Spa. These were actually the tracks of the Schenectady Railway heading to Saratoga. The Hudson Valley trackage was out of the picture to the right.

Here's Glen Street in Glens Falls. Today this would be Route 9 north.

Here's a car heading north to the end-of-the-line in Warrensburg
