Friday, May 3 is Union Station's 80th birthday. And to celebrate, we're taking a look back at its history, from its planning in 1933 to its icon-status today.
Despite the station's controversial past, the Art Deco, mission-style marvel still stands as a monument to the city's grand ambitions.
"The Last of the Great Railway Stations" is throwing itself a birthday bash over the weekend, to honor it's past and present.
So sit, back, relax and join us for a virtual train trip through Union Station's 80 years on earth.
