It included shops, a restaurant, a soda fountain, a parking lot and all other services required for daily passenger operations. Although the Central Terminal had the misfortune to open only a few months before the onset of the Great Depression, the building was extremely busy during its first two decades of operation, without a more busy period than during World War II. The last passenger train left Buffalo's Central Terminal in October 1979, 50 years after this national landmark opened its doors.

Celebrate the 90th anniversary of the Terminal in style with a Gatsby themed dinner! Music provided by The Buffalo Dolls and Ladies First Jazz Big Band. Dancing in the ballroom and beyond. Dinner offered by the Pott & # 39; s Deli and Grille Polish and American restaurant. Join us as we take you on a sentimental journey through the decades of Buffalo's Central Terminal.

A tournament will be held to win the hand of the princess and the public plays an important role in the decision! But be careful, as it is discovered that there is a plot to kill the King.
