BUFFALO CREEK #43
by Scott H.
Day 3 of the "Railway Heritage Discovery Festival"
|Day 3 of the "Railway Heritage Discovery Festival." was in Hamburg New York on the 27th, at the foot of Union & Scott Streets in the Village of Hamburg. 4 Scott Street is the home of "ArtCraft Toy Trains" in the former Erie Railroad Freight Station. Proprietor, Rick Fisher, has been a huge supporter of the Society for many, many years. Thanks Rick!|
|The Buffalo Southern Railroad brought their ALCO RS-11 #5010 locomotive and some track equipment for display. The Buffalo Cattaraugus & Jamestown Scenic Railway had an open house on their passenger equipment and was serving food, snacks and pop as well as advertising their upcoming Fall Excursion Schedule.|
|On August 23rd, Society members Rick Burns and Bob Martin added new vinyl numbers and pinstriping to the firemans' side of the cab. On the 27th, Bob fired up #43 and was at the throttle. Society Vice President, Marty Visciano was the conductor and President Caryl Youngers was the Safety Crew on the ground. For 15 minutes, #43 ran up and down our 60 foot siding. Andrew Henry captured the action.|
|The fun started at 2:00pm and ran until 6:00pm. Always remember that the Buffalo Southern is an operating railroad, so please follow all safety protocol when ever visiting the Hamburg work site and stay safe.|
