Anyone who knows me knows I love trains. When I was a kid, I would beg my parents to buy me the classic diecast Thomas the Tank Engine train toys, and I had most of them collected by the time I grew old enough to not beg for them anymore.

I loved going on train rides, watching train shows and my dad had a few model trains in the basement. It might just be a guy thing, but even I think I have a nostalgic love for trains more than most people.

If you are like me and love old trains, then this will be for you.

According to WGRZ, a classic train engine has made its way to Western New York. The 220-ton train engine has made its home in Williamsville, and according to Western New York Railway Historical Society's Vice President Marty Visciano, they will spend the next year restoring it.

Believe it or not, the train has been sitting in Binghamton for the past decade, and now it will be restored in Buffalo.

Most people think of trains as old boxcars and freights that carry supplies long distances, which is true, but many train models are awesome to look at and this is great that this train is getting restored in Western New York.
