|Sunday, June 19, 2005 Nashville Union Station|
This train came in sometime during the night and sat outside our window.|
Look at the parking lot in the foreground. This is where passenger trains used to wait for their passengers to board. You can still see rails in the pavement. The huge trainshed that once covered this area was removed back in 2001.
Pictures of and historical information about the Trainshed can be found HERE.

|A shot of the entrance to the Hotel. I had my back to the post office to get this shot; need a wider angle lens, I think.|
|I think this is the original Freight Station. It appears on an old drawing of the Union Station that hangs inside the hotel.|
