About Us

Who We Are

The Buffalo Cattaraugus and Jamestown Scenic Railway (BC&J) is a not for profit organization focused on developing and operating excursion steam and diesel-electric passenger train excursions in the Western New York area.

Our Mission

The mission of the Buffalo, Cattaraugus & Jamestown Scenic Railway Company is to attract the public to participate in steam and diesel-powered excursion passenger train rides so that they may learn about and appreciate the equipment and culture of American railroads and to do so in a manner that is safe, educational, enjoyable, economically self-sustaining, and a credit to the legions of men and women who have worked for or used the railroad before us and will in the future.

What We Offer

The BC&J Scenic Railway offers passenger excursions in the Hamburg area each year. In addition, we offer specialty excursions for railfans and the opportunity to charter a train for your business needs.

Whether you are looking for a trip out with the family or a unique place to have a company outing, the Buffalo Cattaraugus and Jamestown Scenic Railway has something to offer.

​Our excursions are operating on the Buffalo Southern Railroad line, with the cooperation and utilization of their diesel/electric-powered locomotives.
