When I was a young kid, I was pretty crazy about trains. It probably had a lot to do with the huge Lionel O-gauge layout we had in the basement. I used to play with those trains for hours and hours. I also loved to look at real trains as well. Whenever I was in the car with my parents, it was always exciting to see a train buzzing down the tracks somewhere. I used to hope and pray that we would have to stop at one of those railroad crossings and watch an entire train as it went by.

Buffalo used to be quite the place to watch trains. Of course, years ago you had the Central Terminal on the east side of Buffalo which was mecca for any rail fan. Even though the glory days of railways are behind us, we do get some rare trains that still come through Buffalo every now and then. This video will show some rare engines that have recently passed through Western New York.
