Welcome to The Gowanda & Buffalo Model Railroad Club!!!!!

You have reached our History page of the Gowanda&Buffalo
Model Railroad Club

The Gowanda & Buffalo Model Railroad Club was started in 1961 by Doctor Zucker,
an ophthalmologist, as occupational therapy for the patients at the former
Gowanda Psychiatric Hospital. Located in the basement of then the
Married Staff Men's Dormitory-building #73. From its conception this local
landmark has been maintained by a group of volunteers dedicated to its operation
and the preservation of this creativity and local railroad history.

The "toothpick suspension bridge" built by a former patient and
hand wound switch motors plus electrical switches
made by other patients are still in use and on display today.

Pictures and articles fill the bulletin boards in the basement hallway.
