Remarks & Notes 
21st Century Limited. The Amtrak Lake Shore Limited (Train 48-12, P42DC 101 leading) passes Buffalo Central Terminal on the morning of Sunday, October 13, 2019 with a nice sprinkling of autumn color and the city of Buffalo in the background. BCT was located near the halfway point of the 20th Century Limited which was the New York Central’s New York to Chicago daily flagship train, the nominal predecessor of the modern day Lake Shore Limited. This station served passengers from several railroads including New York Central, Pennsylvania, Canadian National, Penn Central, and Amtrak from 1929 through 1979, when it closed for good. The Central's insistence that it be located for the railroad's priorities and not the city's delayed its construction. Maintenance of the massive space combined with a drastic drop in passenger traffic to spell the end of BCT as a railroad station. Its conditioned declined for many years until recent restoration efforts.
