Orchard Park Depot 2024

April 2024
by Robert Snyder - Depot Co-Chairman

With the weather finally breaking, projects that were started late last season are now complete. The new deck on the trackside of the freight house which had been in the works for years and was started in  May of 2023,  is now complete. New steps and railing leading to the side door and a beautiful new ADA compliant ramp will allow everyone to tour the interior of the freight house.

The Freight House was not the only structure getting some updates. Our contractor, Jeff Sweet, installed a great all aluminum ADA compliant ramp on the trackside of the depot. This will be a welcome addition to all the visitors and event planners that will use the depot this coming year. Jeff even made the end of the ramp "foldable" to allow full access to the baggage room doors.

Events - The following events are scheduled so far for the Depot:
  • May 11th – OP Garden Club Mother’s Day Plant Sale
  • May18 – National Train Day
  • June 12th – Thank You Party for major reconstruction project donors
  • June 15th – Private Anniversary Party
  • July 10th – OP Library Wellness Fair
  • August 4th – OP Jazz Festival
  • August 7th – OP Library/Go Bike Rodeo

Work sessions will continue every Saturday morning from 9:00am to noon.

As summer approaches, so do routine chores that keep the Depot so attractive. We have plenty of low stress jobs for anyone interested in helping out. Please call our number, (716)-662-7002, and let us know you are coming.
