Nice that they haven't modernised the building. Worth a visit also a great place to catch either train or bus anywhere, the transport system is effective & easy to use
I was at Union Station on the train last Wednesday and was impressed that it is not an anachronism but is still a living breathing place. It is often seen as a film set but is also a hub for the subway. AMTRAK, and the metro link trains. It's fun to simply sit in the grand hall and examine all... More

Today, upon arrival, you enjoy a full-service... More
One of the most beautiful train stations I've ever seen. Not because of the building, but because of the small gardens and patios that surround it. Not worth to make a detour for, but if you need to catch a train here come 15 minutes early to wander around a little bit.
