East Buffalo

East Buffalo developed because the city residents did not want the train to stop directly in Buffalo, bringing with it noise and risk of fire. A roundhouse, livestock yards, grain elevator, loading chute, coal shaft, dipping vat, set of scales, two-story tall engine house, cinder pit, bushel elevator, and spur tracks were constructed. Here the trains stopped and unloaded the incoming freight shipments while the mail and passengers were unloaded at the railroad depot on Lobban Avenue.
