Everybody here must know about Central Terminal, the once-grand railroad station on Buffalo's Polonia/Broadway-Fillmore neighborhood, that is considered arguably one of the greatest urban ruins in the United States.
There are literally tens of Web sites devoted to Central Terminal online. Most either show the building as it was during its glory years of the 1940s, when young Girl Fridays kissed their boyfriends as they headed off to battle the Krauts, or as it appeared in the late 1990s and this decade, in a state of advanced decay.
I stumbled across a Web site that shows Central Terminal as how I remember it ... in the 1970s, as a still-functioning and sound but mostly empty building, devoid of almost all activity.
What's interesting is that one picture shows a Bee Line diesel rail car. The Bee Line is a little-documented commuter rail line between Buffalo and Niagara Falls until the mid-1980s, I think. Despite the abundance of railfans online, there's very little information about the Bee Line.
The images are haunting, to say the least.
