As I continue my news clippings of 1964, I just came across several items showing the transfer of auto traffic from lake to rail. Buffalo was a major distribution point for autos. Boat loads of autos would come into the DL&W terminal (among others) and be off-loaded and then driven to dealerships. It appears some ICC decisions around this time started to favor auto transport.

Some reading for a slow holiday weekend.
