Trainwatching Report
Amtrak Station - Depew, New York
Tuesday, May 4th, 1999

     Today, I went up to Depew again to do some trainwatching, and I figured since I was near the Downtown Buffalo Amtrak Station on Exchange Street, I thought it would be cool to ride Amtrak up to Depew, so I bought a ticket for the quick 12 minute ride up to Depew from Downtown and here is what I photographed...
