train terminal, buffalo, ny

the old Buffalo Train Terminal was open to the public today to celebrate its 75th anniversary. the building has been abandoned for years, but recently there have been efforts to restore it. it's still in pretty awful condition, but the trip did yield some nice shots for me to share with this community. this is my first post here, btw. *waves hello* (image heavy, slow connections - watch out!)

Added 1 image I forgot

Railroads are important components in scenes of urban and industrial decay. Here's some local (Toronto) iron - wheel chocks at the end of a paved-over siding. I'm used to seeing those buffers with legs. Are these particularly unique to any of you? As much as I like them for their shape (they make me think of sharks) I don't know if I'd trust them to stop rolling stock moving at any sort of speed.

I was wondering if any of you guys might be able to help me out regarding my current college project. Does anybody know of any professional photographers who focus on urban decay/derelict buildings etc? Specialised projects or even just vague references in their work will do. I'd really appreciate it if anyone has any information. Thanks in advance :)

The Island

When I was scoping out the light tower from a few posts back I spotted this bizarre island. It seems to be made from the leftovers of temporary landscaping.
