Buffalo Central Terminal

The Buffalo Central Terminal is a former train station in Buffalo, New York. Built in 1929 during the city's boom years, millions of travelers passed through the station and its buildings on their way to other destinations.

As passenger train travel declined through the 1960's and 70's, the train station fell out of use. The last Amtrak train departed in 1979; by 1984, Conrail had discontinued use of the station for dispatching.

After 11 years of abandonment and neglect, the train station was purchased by the Central Terminal Restoration Corporation, a preservation group that began cleaning up and securing the buildings.
