The first time I saw Buffalo Central Terminal was from a westbound Empire Builder. In the foreground you can see the rows of platforms.
The pigeons and raccoons have no use for these, so they will sit empty until snow or fire removes them by force.
The entry point for the painting shed on the top floor. Cars would have a few feet in between them before they entered. Separate sheds would prime and add color.
The bridge here moved workers between the dock, the approach tracks, and refueling buildings.

Old conveyor belts are draped over the sides of the ore chutes to cut down on the noise and wear of the dumping trains.
Taken from the arm of the pocket loader–note the tree growing out of the conveyor belt. Often where you see old piles of taconite, trees are springing up. The byproducts of the pelletization process break down and make a really fertile mix, especially with all the iron content!
The parking lot is in better condition than most of the complex. The left building is the lab.
