Buffalo, Rochester and Pittsburgh Railroad Station is a historic railway station located at Orchard Park in Erie County, New York.

The property includes the passenger depot and brick freight house both constructed in 1911, tracks, a concrete bumper post, a semiphore signal, a portion of the entrance drive, and four period rail cars. The station's plan is based largely on one designed by Henry Hobson Richardson for the 1884 station at Auburndale, Massachusetts.[2]

When the Buffalo, Rochester and Pittsburgh Railway (BR&P) was acquired by the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, Orchard Park Station became a B&O station. The station terminated passenger service in the 1950s before the merger between B&O and C&O into the Chessie System. Freight service operated from Orchard Park until 1979. The station was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2007.[1]
