This is a great place to just meet with friends and relax. You can see the trains as they stop at the station. You can also people-watch out the windows of the car that face the platform that runs by the Amtrak Ticket Office, the Main Bar, and toward the main dining room of the Depot Restaurant and the station platform.
The photos in this slide show were taken in the mid-1990's by Steve Grande on his Amtrak travels throughout the nation. The size of the photos is purposely smaller as disk space was expensive and download speeds were slower at that time.
