On Sept. 27, more than 700 people traveled to Corning on Amtrak. The excursion was a joint effort of the Western New York Historical Railroad Society, Amtrak and the Chamber of Commerce in Corning. The trip, offered on two days, included admission to Corning Glass Works and the Rockwell Museum. It was great.
Corning opened its doors to the people, and the town's economy relished in the sudden surge of tourists. This reminded me of bygone days when trains were the main source of transportation in or out of Buffalo. It would be nice ifBuffalo's Chamber of Commerce offered something like this from other cities. Perhaps it could feature a dinner/theater package.
