Yes!
I live within 15 miles of the falls. (speaking of, did you see there was another guy that went over the falls this week and survived - naked!!!) Anyway, I belong to the WNYGRS and it is a fun group with a lot of helpful people. The guys in Rochester are a great bunch too, watch out though they will infect you with the live steam bug!
If you are interested, the WNYGRS is have a meeting this week. We meet in West Seneca. If you are from Ontario and think that is too far, contact our president. He lives in Ft. Erie.

OK near but not so close! About an hour and half south of the Falls and really close to the PA border. LOL! Near Olean at this point.

yeah, thats an issue for me too..
my wife grew up in North Tonawanda (north side of Buffalo)
and we cross the border to Niagara Falls 2 or 3 times a year..

but this year, our visits will probably stop. /DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/sad.gif

we dont have passports either..and the new "passport card" isnt much less expensive..


It doesnt go in effect until June 1st though:

so you should still be ok in May! ;)

I'm on your side of the border. Ridgeroad is great. You need a passport now. There is a club operating in the region. I'll send you an email.

I am a member of the Central Ontario Garden Railroad Association. Great people, but then again this hobby generally seems to attract interesting and personable people. Send me an off line email if you want additional information about COGRA.

Scooby -

I live in Reston, Virginia, now (near Washington, DC) but I grew up in Medina, in Orleans County - about a half-hour away to the east. Still have many friends in the area - know it well and visit often.
