The best route for foliage!

I need to know which rail line to take that will enable whoever wants to see beautiful fall foliage.

 

On (NJT) we got the :rvl: :pvl: and :mb: lines.

 

On (MTA)/(NYCT)/ConnDOT we got the hudson line, the harlem line, and the new haven line with its branches.

 

If i were to go this week, which route should i take, what about next week, or the week after? What about in november? I need this info for travel planning purposes for others as well as myself to take a trip this year. Thanks for any input!

On (NJT) definitely the :me: & upper :mb:...the :mbl: also is pretty good

 

On the (MTA) LIRR all the eastern lines (The Port Jefferson Branch and Mainline east of Hicksville and the Montauk Branch east of Babylon)

 

All the lines have pretty good service except for the :mbl: which is limited

Not sure, but I've never encountered more contact between car and foilage than on a downtown (Q) between Newkirk and Kings Hwy. There were times when I thought kids were throwing rocks at the train until I saw branch imapcts. :D

I live right next to Pelham Bay Park, so I think I'll keep a good chunk of my foliage hunting local.

 

Seeing it by train is totally different, especially in some parts of CT..

 

 

The Hudson line on the MNRR.

 

When is the best time?

Well the trees are starting to turn colors up along the Hudson line but not really 100% yet. So maybe next month? I've only started riding on the Hudson line to Beacon since spring time, so unfortunately, I can't really tell you when is the best time to go check out the foliage.
