In former times the Union Station in Denver was the center of the locomotion in the west.
The grand railway station is still in function, but also an attraction for railroad nostalgia friends and enthusiasts.
Whether you are actually on a trip or not, this historic stop is a visit worth anyway.
Originally built in 1880 as a Union depot, the building burned down shortly after but was re-erected again in 1912.
The architecture with about 20 m high ceilings and enormous arched windows, is very impressive - outside as well as inside. In the basement one of the biggest railroad collection of the world is accommodated which draws the attention of every railroad lover.
