No matter how much you love model trains, and seriously who doesn't? There is no way you would be able to find the space for the large model train set in the basement of the Buffalo History Museum. "Not unless you got a big basement." according to Charlie Nuemann who heads up The Rail Barons.

The Rail Barons, a group of model train enthusiasts, look after and run the train set at the History Museum. Charlie joined the group twenty-five years ago. He says he's doesn't know much about maintaining the trains, but enjoys making the buildings and boats.

The Rail Barons are volunteers and you can check to see when they are running the trains at the Buffalo History Museum website.
