There are more than 1.6 million reasons why passenger rail is very much alive between the Midwest and East Coast rail hubs. Or, we could have bragged there were 2.2 billion reasons, pointing to the dollar value of rail infrastructure safety and performance improvements built since 2010, underway or in detailed engineering – today. Either way, All Aboard Ohio is committed to encouraging Amtrak, the Federal Railroad Administration, Congress, en route communities and host railroads Norfolk Southern and CSX Transportation to keep partnering, working, improving, building and expanding. There are nearly 4,500 people per day riding on trains that traveled on at least 100 miles of the Chicago-Cleveland-Buffalo-New York City route. And it includes 1,023,698 riders on short- and medium-distance trains (Empire Service and the Maple Leaf), a 4 percent increase over 2010. Unlike government-owned and financed airports and highways, the Chicago-New York City rail corridor is owned mostly by private interests, namely Norfolk Southern Corp. If this rail facility did not exist, at least 40,000 trucks per day would be added to a highway system whose physical condition consistently receives poor grades by the American Society of Civil Engineers in its annual report cards. Thus, the following significant rail infrastructure improvements (planned or underway) are important for accommodating the growth of passenger and freight rail services in the busy Chicago-New York City corridor. I like this article except for the fact that Fort Wayne, IN hasn’t had Amtrak service since 1990. We included Fort Wayne because it is only 30 miles from the Waterloo station stop via I-69.

I'm a local looking for some of the better spots in buffalo to get into some awesome spots for a look into urban photography. And, if you'd like you can take a look at my website for ideas or whatever, and google your topic as well to help you out! These are just some of my suggestions, as there are plenty of other urban photographers on this forum that would be willing to help you out! I have a few - not the best, but I will be posting new pics of the Terminal coming up in a few weeks time.

Nostalgia for trains and train travel seems to remain constant in a world where very little, if anything, can be preserved in perpetuity. Aside from engineering, one of the most significant changes over the years is the architecture of stations. The Erie Railway originally travelled between New York City and Buffalo, eventually expanding west.
Train stations eventually evolved into exquisite architectural monuments to the industrial age.

Train travel creates a unique relationship between mobility and freedom: two indelible threads woven into fabric of American culture. Prior to moving back to Buffalo after 16 years in NYC Tracy was a Staff Preservationist at the Landmarks Preservation Commission of NYC and currently freelance writer for a real estate firm in NYC.
Tracy holds a BA in Art History and Cultural Anthropology from New York University and an MS in Sustainable Planning and Development, concentrating on Historic Preservation and Urban Health, from Pratt Institute School of Architecture. As a Research Fellow with the Centre for Urban Health and Mental Health (London) she is exploring the relationship between sensory design elements and urban health improvement.
In addition to being a cultural photographer who has traveled around the world, she also works with recycled paint chips to create large scale murals. I love trains and railroad history, but I'm still trying to figure out what this story is trying to convey.
That’s how many people rode trains in the 960-mile Chicago-South Bend-Fort Wayne-Toledo-Cleveland-Buffalo-Rochester-Syracuse-Albany-New York City travel corridor – one of the world’s most populous.
A decade of growth in rail travel is due to the rising cost and growing inconvenience of car and air travel, more young people preferring public transportation over driving, aging baby boomers lacking the stamina for long-distance driving and improved rail service quality. That ridership includes 613,640 passengers in 2011 on long-distance trains (Lake Shore Limited and Capitol Limited), a 5.2 percent rise over 2010. This does not include Amtrak’s Chicago-Michigan trains which use the westernmost 40 miles of the Chicago-New York City route and carried 797,017 riders in 2011. Thus All Aboard Ohio is committed to creating win-win situations for passengers and freight when advocating infrastructure improvements that accommodate growth for both modes. It’s why the small town of Waterloo has the second-busiest Amtrak station in terms of ridership in the entire state (trailing only Indianapolis). Gas prices are rising and we must as a state and nation address train transportation as an option besides cars and planes! Of course the grain silos and the like are at the top of my list, but anyone have any suggestions and even better tips tricks and directions to a few of these places?
This is a splendid area where beauty abounds in every crevice and corner of this dense cityscape as thousands walk it every business day. You are going to have a blast in Buffalo - once you start taking urban pictures in this area, it is easy to get hooked. New York City had Pennsylvania Station and its demolition was the catalyst for historic preservation laws across the country. The architecture may have changed over time, but trains are still being used around the world. It would be great to improve the current train station in Buffalo (AmTrak) and restore Central Terminal so train travel can return to the city. She also attended attended Columbia University for graduate studies in landscape design for urban environments. By using a holistic approach to urban planning the theory of "urban acupuncture", small pockets of change, can be used to improve wellness of a community. There are so many possibilities - some of my favorite shots are getting up close to a certain structure or tower, looking up and getting a well-balanced scene for a cool, not normally seen picture view.

Well, there are quite a few people I know that are also into that for urban photography purposes as well.
Ship travel could only reach ports, while rail lines could reach inland areas and connect port cities. Buffalo has Central Terminal, and most people hope restoration of the abandoned Art Deco landmark comes to fruition. Graduate research about urban health, alleviating food deserts, and embracing cultural strengths was completed in Bushwick and Red Hook areas of Brooklyn, NY. There is a good story in the making here but everything seems fragmented with no real direction.
The Buffalo Central Terminal (and area) is a must see for old industrial abandonment for urban photographers like yourself. America hadn’t found its own architectural identity at that point and was leaning on the knowledge of immigrants who brought their heritage with them to a new country.
With the ability to carry building supplies in bulk compared to horse wagons, the architecture of homes across the US changed. Please feel free to ask me questions on this subject or the city in general, as I'm sure many users on this forum will aid you in your task as well. The East Side in general has quite a few decrepit areas that I am sure would keep you occupied. Designs were simplified versions of styles such as Queen Anne, Gothic Revival, Stick, Chateauesque and French Colonial. There appears to be too many fluff filled stories dropping onto the front page that receive very little attention by the participants of this site and have no relative cohesion with articles of preservation, history, and construction. If you are someone that likes to show off many business workers, people, tourists, etc along with buildings and traffic to enhance a bustling city-life scene, then walk and take photos on Main Street during the weekday lunch hour. Good topics are being pushed off the main page and on to the secondary pages while being replaced by feel good stories and other snippets of nonsensical blather. May I suggest that the time has come for Buffalo Rising to create a second online site to accommodate the articles related to history, preservation, construction, development, and other stories of similar content. If you aren't someone who cares about people in pictures, and might want to show a city in an abandoned state, head to Main Street on a weekend where there is nobody around, nothing going on, and no attractions, fountains, vendors, or any of the like to be found.
Too much good conversation and information gets wasted and buried under stories that would work better in their own arena. Buffalo is an extremely dense city - used to be the 3rd most dense, and the buildings on Main Street portray that aspect pretty well. There is an array of countless urban photo opportunities waiting for you in an endless potential that indeed has kept me occupied on this special street for years and years.
