Buffalo Creek was a switching road in the heavy industrialized southern portion of Buffalo NY. It was jointly leased and controlled by Erie (Erie-Lackawanna) and Lehigh Valley, and served as the primary switching carrier in Buffalo's grain elevator and mill district. The railroad was recognized far beyond its Buffalo confines by its fleet of grain box cars with the flour sack in a circle logo. When Conrail was formed on April 1, 1976, Buffalo Creek followed EL and LV into the new railroad, and was formally merged out of existence in 1983. Here are a few random views of the road's Alco switchers that I captured on various visits to Buffalo in the 1970's.
