Ok, so I dug out my Penn Central "Empire Service" timetable of April 27, 1969. Train 71 from Grand Central Terminal leaves Batavia at 3:35 pm, and arrives in Buffalo 4:00pm. However, there are no trains heading east that stop at Batavia! Was this Penn Central's subtle way of making travel to Batavia difficult to make a strong case to close the station?
