Pittsfield Train Station is closest, at approximately 8 miles, and Amtrak services the Pittsfield station. However, the Albany and Springfield train stations are only 45 to 50 miles east and west, providing many more arrival and departure time options. Wassaic Train Station is 55 miles from Blantyre, servicing the Metro North Railway direct from Grand Central Station in New York City.
If you were hoping to hop on a train and ride it to Blantyre, you can take Amtrak to the Pittsfield, Mass., station — about 8 miles away from the Five-Star luxury hotel. If the Pittsfield station train doesn't arrive when you need to, Amtrak runs trains into larger nearby cities such as Boston; Springfield, Mass.; Hartford, Conn.; Albany, N.Y.; as well as New York City and parts of New Jersey. Once you roll into one of those spots, rent a vehicle at the local airport or car rental locations around the city and make the drive to Blantyre.
