Following up on yesterday's post with pictures of the ongoing construction of the new Buffalo Exchange Street Station, here are some artist concept drawings of the finished project.

First is a view of the exterior of the completed building; second is a view of the waiting room; third is an overview of the passenger drop-off zone, plaza area & Exchange Street; and the final view is of the designated walkway connecting the station to Main Street.

Work on the new Buffalo Exchange Street Station continues to move forward at a rapid pace!

In these photos taken 4-17-20, we see the new station building; a view from the Washington Street bridge looking east showing that the grading for the by-pass siding track is nearly complete; a view looking west to the 'tunnel' under Main Street & a picture of a stockpile of pre-formed cornices ready for installation.

The expected completion date is the late fall of 2020.

Ontario's Metrolinx announced today that GO Transit's weekend train service between Toronto and Niagara Falls, ONT, will now operate year-round, using the same schedules as currently offered on the seasonal summer-only trains.

Great news for Western New Yorkers making weekend visits to the beautiful city of Toronto!
