Today I have been to Union Station in downtown Los Angeles. I am coming through Union Station very often. I do not drive and therefore I use public transportation. Subway, Metro Rail, Metro Link and Amtrak Trains are going through Union Station. This gives me a lot of opportunities to come to Union Station. Usually I am to busy to make a video about this historic building, but today I had time and I made a video. Los Angeles Union Station (LAUS) is the main railway station in Los Angeles, California and the largest railroad passenger terminal in the Western United States. It opened in May 1939 as the Los Angeles Union Passenger Terminal, replacing La Grande Station and Central Station. Union Station is a major transportation hub for Southern California, providing 60,000 passengers a day access to Amtrak (the National Railroad Passenger Corporation) long distance trains, Amtrak California regional trains, Metrolink commuter trains, and several Metro Rail subway and light rail lines. The original ticket concourse has 62-foot (19 m) high ceilings and a 110-foot (34 m) counter. It is now closed to the general public, and, along with the southern garden and Harvey House restaurant area, made available to rent for filming and other special events. Even with its grand scale, Union Station is still considered small in comparison to other union stations. The Patsaouras Transit Plaza on the east side of the station serves dozens of bus lines operated by Metro and several other municipal carriers. Union Station is located in the northeastern corner of Downtown Los Angeles, on the property bounded by Alameda Street, Cesar Chavez Avenue, Vignes Street, and the Hollywood Freeway. It is across Alameda Street from L.A.'s historic Olvera Street and El Pueblo de Los Angeles State Historic Park. The historic Terminal Annex building is on the opposite side of the Chavez Avenue underpass. Chinatown and Civic Center are a short distance away.

In the begining of November, I hopped aboard Metrolink and headed up to the Los Angeles area for the day. Towards the end of the day, around 2 hours before my train departed, I hung around Union Station for some rush hour Metrolink and Amtrak trains. During the 2 hours I was there, over 20 trains arrived and departed from the 13 tracks that Union Station offers. Usually refered to as the "last of the great railway stations" built in the United States, Union Station still stands after 77 years. Opened to the public on May 3, 1939, this place sure has seen many trains and changes over the years. In its heyday, passenger service was provided by the Santa Fe Railway, Southern Pacific Railroad, Union Pacific Railroad, as well as the Pacific Electric Railway and Los Angeles Railway. Today Metrolink, Metro Rail, and various local and long distance Amtrak trains call Union Station home. Destinations can be as close as Glendale, as far as Chicago, or anywhere inbetween. Caught typical Metrolink and Amtrak action there, including RBRX 18520 and RBRX 18522 on different Metrolink trains. BNSF and Metrolink's PTC test train was also parked on the far east tracks of the station, waiting for the evening rush hour to end. Busy place to be at this time of day, that's for sure!

Touring the Los Angeles Union Station in Los Angeles In this video, I will give you a first person narrative tour of the beautiful Union Station in Los Angeles. If you enjoy it, please subscribe, like, comment and share. Los Angeles Union Station (LAUS), better known as its original name, Los Angeles Union Passenger Terminal (LAUPT) is one of the best-recognized terminals in the western United States. When built LAUPT was served by the Union Pacific, Southern Pacific, and Santa Fe hosting some of the West’s most prominent passenger trains. Unfortunately, it was completed during the waning days of rail travel as the public abandoned trains for other modes of transportation. The station's high water mark occurred only during its first decade of operation. After World War II its importance dwindled but its fate proved far brighter than several others across the country. Despite its late construction LAUPT has been in continual use since it opened and is ready to handle the resurgence of passenger rail in the 21st century. Follow me on Twitter: https://twitter.com/chutneybay Subscribe to My Channel: http://youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=ChutneyBay General Information About Union Station (Los Angeles): Widely regarded as “the last of the great train stations”, Los Angeles Union Station is the largest railroad passenger terminal in the Western United States. Originally known as the “Los Angeles Union Passenger Terminal”, it was intended to serve as a consolidation of the three local railroad terminals and the railroads they had served (Southern Pacific, Union Pacific and Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe) with construction costs shared by these railroads. Designed in a unique blend of Spanish Colonial, Mission Revival and Art Deco styles by the father-son architect team of John and Donald Parkinson, the facility was completed at a cost of $11 million in 1939 and opened with a lavish, star-studded, three-day celebration attended by a half million Angelenos. With its vast waiting room and enclosed garden patios, the station itself is a reflection of the grandeur and seductive climate that is Los Angeles. Travelers who strolled to their trains along terra cotta tile floors with their inlaid marble strips walked beside extravagant interior walls designed with both travertine marble and early models of acoustical tiles. Passengers could visit the famous Harvey House restaurant, located in the southern area of the main building. Designed by famous Southwestern architect Mary Coulter, it was the last of this line of restaurants to be constructed in a passenger terminal. Within just a few years of opening, Los Angeles Union Station transformed into a bustling 24-hour, seven-day-a-week hive of activity with as many as 100 troop trains carrying tens of thousands of servicemen through the terminal every day during World War II. But the war ended and so did the rush of passengers, as air and automobile travel became the vogue through the next several decades. By the 1970s, Santa Fe's legendary Super Chief and El Capitan, the Southern Pacific's Sunset Limited and Daylight, and the Union Pacific's City of Los Angeles vanished from the rails. In 1980, the station was entered into the National Register of Historic Places. Currently, Los Angeles Union Station is linked to the Patsaouras Transit Plaza, which opened in 1995, and offers transit connections to destinations throughout Los Angeles. It also serves as the primary regional hub for Amtrak’s 36 daily trains and Metrolink’s five-county commuter train service, and as a transfer point for Metro’s Red, Purple and Gold Lines. In April 2011, Metro completed the acquisition of the Los Angeles Union Station property, including 38 acres and 5.9 million square feet of development rights. Metro will oversee future development of the terminal to meet local office, retail, entertainment and residential needs, as well as Southern California’s evolving transportation system. Activity at the Los Angeles Union Station is expected to surge as expansion of Metro’s system connects more lines into the station. A grand lady still, Los Angeles Union Station’s best years are yet to come.

Los Angeles Union Station (LAUS) is the main railway station in Los Angeles, California, and the largest railroad passenger terminal in the Western United States. It opened in May 1939 as the Los Angeles Union Passenger Terminal, replacing La Grande Station and Central Station. Approved in a controversial ballot measure in 1926 and built in the 1930s, it served to consolidate rail services from a number of railroads (the Union Pacific, Santa Fe, and Southern Pacific) into one terminal station. Conceived on a grand scale, Union Station became known as the "Last of the Great Railway Stations" built in the United States. It was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980. Today, the station is a major transportation hub for Southern California, serving almost 110,000 passengers a day. Three of Amtrak's long distance trains originate and terminate here: the Coast Starlight to Seattle, the Southwest Chief and "Texas Eagle" to Chicago, and the Sunset Limited to New Orleans. The state-supported Amtrak California Pacific Surfliner regional trains run frequently to San Diego and also to Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo. The station is the hub of the Metrolink commuter trains, and several Metro Rail subway and light rail lines serve it as well, with more in construction or planning. The Patsaouras Transit Plaza, on the east side of the station, serves dozens of bus lines operated by Metro and several other municipal carriers.

Here is how to ride the Metro Rail train in Los Angeles California. First, you need a Tap card, which you can buy at the train station for $1.00, and you need to put some money on it to pay for your train fare, which is $5.00 for a day pass. If you ride the LA Metro Rail train without paying your fare, the fine is $250. Next, tap your card on the turnstile and get on the train. There are maps on the train and at every station so you will know where you are going. Riding the Metrolink is an easy way to get around Los Angeles. You can ride the Los Angeles Metro Rail Train to Staples Center to see a basketball game. The Metro Rail train blue line stops right in front of the Staples center.
