Amtrak Train at Buffalo Depew Station (March 1984)



Amtrak used Buffalo Central Terminal from May 1971 to October 1979.  Amtrak first planned to open Cheektowaga Station and the  timetables published in October 1978 showed the notice for the station.  But the name of the station changed and Buffalo-Depew Station opened in October 1979.  The Depew station replaced the Central Terminal.  The huge Central Terminal facilities are currently abandoned.  Current Amtrak Buffalo-Depew Station was built in 1980.
