    These train sheds are all that remains of the DL&W (Lackawanna)RR passenger station in Buffalo, NY. This station was the Western terminal of the Lackawanna Railroad.

    The Niagara Frontier Transit uses this as a trolley barn, and maintenance facility.

    Well, at least a part of the old terminal still exists, and is being put to good use. Who knows, maybe someday it will be reborn as to its original purpose.

      Thank you, Jenni...and a Happy Fourth to you, also!!!! Yes it is great RR architecture, and I am sending this link which describes the terminal in text and pictures...from its birth until our times.

      Near the end of the article, are some pictures that I took to the station's ticket area, which was re-created at The Steamtown NHS in Scranton, PA.
