This study was based on a parent project funded by New York State’s Aid to Localities Fund focused on the rail line between the cities of Cortland and Binghamton. In the spring of 2007, New York State Senator Thomas Libous requested a study of the potential benefits and feasibility of this excursion train. The purpose of the present study was to examine the relationship between constraints and young adults’ desire and ability to use an excursion train as a leisure activity. Results indicated that young adults were more interested and supportive in almost every single instance. However, young adults were also more constrained than their older counterparts. This information could be valuable to recreation practitioners in the future, giving insight into what young adults are looking for in their recreational pursuits.
