Buffalo road trip!

I had a pretty epic road trip about to Buffalo about a month ago. In the course of about 12 hours, I saw action of 2 Class 1 freight RRs, a pair of shortlines and Amtrak. The busiest spot was Tifft Street in the City  of Buffalo- because all of those RRs pass through Buffalo Creek Junction. Here is the album:

A couple of notes:
 
1, The NS local with the high nose SD40-2 is H0A.
2. The eastbound Amtrak is "The Lake Shore Limited"
3. The NS autorack train is 287, which runs from Buffalo west to Bellevue (OH) daily.  
 
 
I also spent time with Norfolk Southern and Buffalo Southern near GB Diamond in Blasdell:

The westbound NS freight is 310, which runs from Elmira to Bellevue daily. The crossing is Lake Avenue.
 
Later in the afternoon, I spent some time with the Buffalo Runner in Buffalo and Bison Yard in Cheektowaga.

After supper, I headed eastward... catching NS 206 heading eastbound at Darien Center:

The day ended with NS 22K heading eastbound @ Dale Road in the hamlt of Dale:

All photos were taken by me Friday 4/26/2013. Owing to time constraints, I am unable to post individual photos as I have in the past... so I hope y'all enjoy the albums on Photobucket.
