2019 Buffalo Central Terminal Train Show

As summer is coming to an end, there is no sign that the Buffalo event scene is slowing down. In fact, this coming weekend, it’s going to be tough to figure out where to go, and what to see. For the kid in all of us, The Central Terminal is hosing its annual Train Show. This event has come to be a must for rail fans. This is a chance to thrown on a conductor’s hat, while viewing hundreds of trains and train memorabilia. Best of all? The 2019 Buffalo Central Terminal Train Show takes place in the coveted art deco architectural masterpiece that was once the hub of train activity in the region. 

This year’s event will feature working layouts, a children’s play area, a test track, and lots of merchandise. It’s an opportunity to bring the whole family too, because there’s something for everyone at this event. Plus, kids 12 and under get in for free. So come for the memorabilia, or to see a working train set in action. Or simply come to experience the greatness of The Central Terminal.

And remember, the Central Terminal Restoration Corporation (CTRC) has been issuing requests from the community to send in historic photos of the iconic restaurant (seen in this post) and waiting room, so that CJS Architects can successfully and accurately “reactivate” these monumental features. Anyone in possession of historic photos can submit via
