New York - Buffalo Central Terminal
Heralded as one of the premier examples of railroad art deco architecture when it was built in 1929, the New York Central's Buffalo Central Terminal is an imposing and majestic building. In 1967 the New York Central RR and the Pennsylvania RR merged, forming the Penn-Central system, the terminal's second owner. Amtrak took over the majority of the inter-city passenger service in the United States in 1971 and used Central Terminal as its Buffalo terminus until October 28, 1979 when the terminal was abandoned. At the end of August 1997 the Central Terminal Restoration Corporation took possession of this grand old edifice with the primary focus on restoration and preservation of this landmark site.

New York - Buffalo Central Terminal Restoration Corporation
Buffalo, NY - It is the hopes of everyone involved in Central Terminal that the building will be restored to its former glory. However funding is the biggest factor in any restoration work. First and foremost on the restoration agenda is sealing and stabilization. The building has been fenced and sealed to keep out weather, vandals, and other intruders. Asbestos removal has been completed inside the main hall. The CTRC recently repaired the flat roofs of the building, and fixed drainage pipes inside to prevent the pooling of rain and snow inside the building. The domed roofs of the concourse are the next item on the list to be repaired - which includes removing the cement tiles on the roofs, repairing the roofs, and replacing the cement tiles. Once the building is completely sealed from the elements and intruders, restoration work inside the building can be considered. The reported estimated cost of complete restoration is in the area of 56 million dollars.

New York - Buffalo Rochester & Pittsburgh Depot Orchard Park, NY
Orchard Park, NY - The Orchard Park railroad depot at Highland Avenue and South Lincoln Street is not your average small town railroad station. Built in 1911 by the Buffalo, Rochester Pittsburgh Railway, it was uncommonly substantial thanks to the railway president, Harry Yates, who lived in the village of Orchard Park. The depot is an exact replica a stone H.H. Richardson depot in Auburndale, Massachusetts. The only difference is the Orchard Park depot is made of "Tapestry Brick".

Restoration to date is about 90% complete, and is open to the public during the summer every Saturday from 9am - 1pm until Labor Day. Many village civic organizations also use the depot as the center for their functions. Events such as the Orchard Park Garden Club Sale, Christmas in the Park, Business Functions and the annual Ice Cream Social, give the public a chance to enjoy a little railroad heritage and for the Society to show off their work and equipment.

In addition to restoring the passenger depot to its 1911 as built stature, the Freight House has become the site for the Societies Museum Store and Archive Center. This will provide the public access to the extensive historical collection holdings of the Society. Climate control and fire protection will ensure safe, long term storage of rapidly aging railroad related artifacts and documents.
