I happened upon this snippet while searching for a family article. Recall the LV had trackage rights on the Erie from Waverly to Buffalo. The Buffalo line is done and it's time to head to Manchester.

From the Hornellsville Evening Tribune September 2, 1892.

Erie public timetables of the 1930's and -40's showed Lehigh Valley Terminal in Buffalo. Is there a backstory to that?

Not sure what you are asking. With the completion of the LV from Sayre to Buffalo in the 1890s, they then built a terminal in Buffalo. So, yes, by the 1930s and 40s, there would still be a station.

I was puzzled by the fact that the Erie showed as using the Lehigh Valley Terminal instead of a station of their own, since they got to Buffalo first. Maybe the Erie liked the new LV station better than their own and arranged for trackage rights?
