Buffalo-Exchange Street is a simple Amtrak Station located in just south of Downtown Buffalo. The grade level Buffalo Metro Rail along Main Street runs a couple of blocks west of the station The city did have a large downtown station at one time called Buffalo Central Station (named for the New York Central Railroad). Its art deco remains are visible from trains just west of the current Exchange Street station that was built to replace it. The current station has a fairly small brick station house that is still open and staffed for the weekday eastbound departures to New York (two Empire Service trains a day), as well as the Maple Leaf when it stops in both directions of its service. There is one side platform at track level that is falling apart. When I was getting off a train there the conductor reminded the grey haired lady to watch her step on a pothole along it. It's quite uneven. The Lakeshore Limited doesn't serve the station, stopping only at the subruban Buffalo-Depew Station before it curves south to fallow Lake Erie.
