I am sorry that I missed ARCADE AND ATTICA RAILROADS return to steam, I trust that THE ARCADE AND ATTICA RR made the return of steam locomotive No.18 a EVER SO GLORIOUS RETURN !

My mom saw the Saturday 2:30pm train leave. She said it was almost empty.

I'm sure high gas prices are hurting.

When I worked the train, almost all are passengers were from Buffalo. Some from Rochester.

I think it was the summer of 1976, a man and his son from Rochester spent a whole weekend and part of another filming the train with 14. They were everywhere! We did a lot of making smoke for them and using different whistles. They did send me a thank you for our cooperation but I never did get to see the film. And now in the digital age, this could be great. Wonder if he ever visits this list?

Happened to be passing through Arcade yesterday, August 2nd. I saw the train leaving the station at noon. This was the first American built standard-gauge steam engine I saw in operation since 1983. Glad to see it back in service, and hopefully I'll get a chance to ride behind her in the coming months.
