Union Station

Snapped this one – quickly – as I ran for the MARC train on my way out of town this weekend!  Union Station is pretty neat because it is a beautiful building but also a functioning train station, with Amtrac trains leaving all the time.  I came in on the metro and then caught the commuter train up to the Baltimore airport – not the quickest way to go, but relatively cheap, which is nice. 

Union Station opened in 1907, and while train travel has decreased since WWII, Union Station is still a hub for shopping and tourism – about 20 million people visit the station each year.

  1. A beautiful place, and I’ve been there both as a tourist and a train passenger.

  2. Your blog has been included in our guide.

    Around The World with Daily Photoblogs Old and New is a brief history of the City Daily Photoblog movement and a guide to sites around the world.

    Although originally arising from the CDPB lists this is an independent publication. The criterion for inclusion here is that photographs mainly from a specific geographical location have been posted at dated intervals, and have archives searchable by date.

    Please keep us informed of any changes to your details.
