Buffalo Central Terminal

Construction of a Transportation Landmark

By: John C. Dahl

The New York Central’s monumental Art Deco railway station in Buffalo, NY opened on June 22, 1929. It was the largest, wholly owned station ever constructed by the company. Designed by architects Alfred Fellheimer and Stewart Wagner, its optimistic size and grandeur reflected a now bygone era from the heroic age of railways when Buffalo, NY was second only to Chicago in terms of its railroads. Within a few months of opening day, the Great Depression of the 1930’s would forever change the future. After World War II, the railroads would never again reign supreme in transportation.

Official photographs by Warren Inskip, the commercial photographer who documented the progress of the construction, are reproduced in this 42-page coated paper booklet. If you are a fan of railroad stations, this is a must addition to your library, and is available now from the Railroad Station Historical Society for $13.00 postpaid. Members of the Railroad Station Historical Society may purchase additional copies of the Monograph for $10.00 (members received one copy free as part of the 2006 membership). Book dealer inquiries welcome.

Send me ____ copy(ies) of Monograph No. 25 – Buffalo Central Terminal for $13.00 each (members $10.00 each). Add an additional $12.00 for a 2007 membership (6 issues of the Bulletin) and purchase the Monograph for $10.00.
