On Saturday, August 1, and on Sunday, August 2, the Norfolk Southern Railroad and the Fort Wayne Railroad Historical Society are going to bring world famous steam locomotive No. 765 on round trip passenger train rides from Buffalo to Corning and back, leaving from Cheektowaga (Buffalo) about 7 AM, getting to Corning around noon, and getting back about 6 PM. Ticket prices vary, from about $100 on up. You can get more information at the Fort Wayne Railroad Historical Society website.

There are a few rail fans here. Hope some will be able to take that trip.

I forgot to mention that, nearing Corning, you'll go through my original home town, Addison. Don't blink.

And can we pick up some dinner ware in Corning? By the way, I was born in Rochester.

There's a two hour lunch layover in Corning, so you might be able to do some sightseeing/shopping. By the way, if they follow the route a previous train excursion from Buffalo to Corning and back did, they will cross the spectacular train bridge at Letchworth Park, which was recently voted in a nationwide poll, the best state park in the country.
I remember you mentioning in a previous posting that you were originally from upstate New York.

Yes, I was born in Rochester while my dad was teaching in Brockport. On a visit there many years ago, I also visited Letchworth State Park and remember the high train trestle there. I believe that there was also a restaurant named the Big Tree Inn somewhere near there.

Crossing the Letchworth Trestle, about an hour from Addison and Corning.
