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 ...
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 import...
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 Me...

We’re going to take a ride on Amtrak’s “Pacific Surfliner” train between Los Angeles and San Diego, California. Departing Los Angeles out of famous Union Station, we’ll head south along the coast, paralleling the Pacific Ocean for several miles, with many different points of interest along the way. We arrive in San Diego at the historic Santa Fe depot, a hub of rail activity featuring Coaster commuter trains and the San Diego Trolley. Experience it all aboard the Surfliner on a beautiful October day in Southern California.

The Los Angeles Union Passenger Terminal (LAUPT) opened in May of 1939 as a central terminal and terminus for passenger trains coming in & out of the vicinity of the Los Angeles area. LA Union Station used to see many trains of many different railroads in the past, such as Union Pacific, Southern Pacific, and the Santa Fe. Today, not much in terms of the main building structure has changed, but operations surely have, as Union Station is now the hub of Amtrak's long-distance and Pacific Surfliner commuter trains, Metrolink commuter rail lines, and Metro Rail light rail and subway lines. Here, we observe some of the action commonly seen at Los Angeles Union Station featuring Pacific Surfliner trains, Metrolink commuter trains, Metro light rail trains, and even Amtrak's Southwest Chief long-...
Los Angeles Union Station, in a corner of downtown Los Angeles, is the largest railroad passenger terminal in the Western United States. The historic station opened in the spring of 1939. At the time, it was known as Los Angeles Union Passenger Terminal. Today, the station handles up to 60,000 passengers a day who connect to Amtrak, Metrolink, and Metro subway and light rail lines. In 1980, the station was added to the National Register of Historic Places.
Let's take a ride on the Los Angeles Metro's Red Line subway. We depart Union Station and travel into Hollywood, getting off at Hollywood/Vine. Here we'll see a number of trains arrive and depart before heading back to downtown. Nearing the end of our ride we'll get a rear-view of the subway tracks as the train makes its last few stops. This video was filmed during my vacation in the Los Angeles area in October, 2014. Enjoy!
