Buffalo union station.—A report has been prepared by the Fifth Vice-President, New York Central and Hudson River Rd., on the proposed union station terminal at Buffalo, N.Y. There are 12 railway lines entering Buffalo, of which seven run into the N.Y.C. and H.R.Rd. station, three into the Erie Rd. station, and the other three have their own lines; a thirteenth line does not yet enter the city, but is interested in the project. The Canadian lines interested are the G.T.R. and Toronto, Hamilton and Buffalo Ry., which run in over the Michigan Central tracks; while the Michigan Central, the Wabash, and the Pere Marquette railroads run through Ontario from the Detroit River to the Niagara River, and secure an entrance to Buffalo by various routes. The suggested site for the union station to accommodate these lines is in Genesee St., and the proposed plan, if carried out, would do away with every grade crossing remaining in the city from Main St. to Fort Porter. The site covers an area of 107 acres, on which it is proposed to lay 34 miles of track.
