Default Colonel Ward Pumping Station

I went to the Colonel Ward Pumping station in Buffalo NY on Sunday for a tour and was very impressed. There are plans in place to get one out of the five engines running again. The last time they ran was 1972.

It would be neat to see one of those giants running again! Do you have a schedual when they give tours? Buffalo is a long way, but I hope to make the trip someday

I believe the tour is only once a year at the same time.
