Whoa!  Spotted at the Allen Medical Station.  I encountered these new turnstiles wrapped and staged...for implementation?  I need to Google this. 

For the non-Buffalo reader, currently NFTA (Niagra Frontier Transit Authority) uses the honor system for fares.  These pictures suggest we're going to a more conventional turnstile system.  

We're going to get turnstile jumpers!  More and more like New York City each day around here.

As may have been hinted at by about 15 years of websites and the occasional mention at this blog, I have a fascination with transit rail systems.  Subway systems, light rail, high speed rail -- and to a lesser degree, conventional commuter rail.  Don't ask me to explain the intense specificity (why not freight rail or Amtrak?), I can't.  

Video Pan of Progress on the Exchange Street Station, with Commentary.

Buffalo is building a new train station for its Amtrak NYC cross-feeder called the Exchange Street Station, which is a replacement for the old standing one of several decades, and which goes by the same name.  Today was sunny and warm and, shoot, I showered, so I indulged in some ground footage on how the construction is going, including this video pan with some pretty limp commentary.  

You can check out Buffalo Rising's June 2020 post on the progress for some more insightful exhibition, and its Exchange Street tag for even more.  Tasting this project for content has excited me for its future.
