Looking for photos of Buffalo, Rochester & Pittsburgh Ry.

Can anyone tell me where I may find photos on line of trains belonging to the Buffalo, Rochester and Pittsburgh Railroad? I have seen a series of books that are out of print, but $65 a copy is way out of my ballpark.
Thanks.

I don't know how this query ended up in the Model Railroading forum, it would be better off in the "Fallen Flags" section under the Baltimore & Ohio heading. The B&O purchased the BR&P in 1932.

There is a Buffalo, Rochester & Pittsburgh Facebook page. You might also try an Internet search for the Salamanca (NY) Railroad Museum (I believe they have a Facebook page as well). I've seen a number of vintage, and interesting, BR&P photos on Facebook.

Check on line for "Buffalo Rochester & Pittsburgh Ry" by Paul Pietrak. Excellent reference, lots of pics, good history of the railroad. There is also a Yahoo group for the BR&P.
