I don't think spring would be complete for me these days without a trip to greater Buffalo.  owing to the early arrival of Easter, this year's trip was over 5 weeks after the equinox. Tifft Street is always a good place to start.

All photos in this post were taken by me Friday 4/29/2016 in Hamburg, NY. I have no idea how much longer that classic signal bridge will last. CSX has been removing them east of Buffalo, so it's safe to assume eventually those west of Buffalo will also come down.
