Mohawk & malone railway company $1,000 1940s gold bond
Very Fresh $1,000 Bond, issued and cancelled with a beautiful deer head design, ca. 1944. Dr. William Seward Webb's Mohawk and Malone Railway crossed the northern Adirondacks at Tupper Lake Junction, just north of Tupper Lake. Webb was president of the Wagner Palace Car Company. He began by purchasing the narrow gauge Herkimer, Newport and Poland Railroad, which ran 16 miles from Herkimer to Poland, converting its trackage to standard gauge and straightening it to avoid multiple crossings of the West Canada Creek. He then had track built from Tupper Lake to Moira and thence to Montreal. This was called variously the Adirondack and St. Lawrence Railroad and the Mohawk and Malone. After 1893, it was controlled by the New York Central and Hudson River Railroad. It opened in 1892 from Malone Junction to Childwold Station with a branch from Lake Clear Junction to Saranac Lake. In 1913, it merged with the New York Central and Hudson River Railroad as the "Adirondack Division". The railway was abandoned until 1992 when restoration began with a short, 4-mile section from Thendara to Minnehaha, New York. The section was approved and was demonstrated that year on Independence Day. At this time, it was called the Adirondack Centennial Railroad. In 1994, after gaining popularity, it was renamed the Adirondack Scenic Railroad, and has run under that name every year since. The Adirondack Scenic Railroad (reporting mark ADIX) is a tourist railway located in Adirondack Park that runs during the summer months from Utica to Thendara, and from Saranac Lake to Lake Placid. During the Winter, the entire line (including the Saranac Lake to Old Forge section) is used as a snowmobile trail. The Adirondack Scenic Railroad is now operating over 70 miles of track and has inspired the restoration of historic stations in Holland Patent, Remsen and Tupper Lake. There are plans to extend operations through to Tupper Lake. The line is not used for any freight traffic. Additional Information: This is a cancelled $1,000 Mortgage Bond.
