NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. (AP) - New York state’s newest Amtrak station is set to receive its first trains this week.

The old Amtrak station in the city of Niagara Falls will receive its last two trains Tuesday morning. All trains arriving after 7 a.m. will now stop at the new $43 million Intermodal Transportation Center.

The old station’s staff will make the move to the new location after the last train departs at 6:50 a.m. Tuesday.

Last month, Amtrak and Niagara Falls officials reached an agreement on a 20-year lease for space in the city’s new transportation center. The building, which opened in July, will also house an Underground Railroad museum and a U.S. Customs and Border Protection inspection facility.

Niagara Falls officials say the new station will give a boost to the local tourism industry.
