St. Louis Union Station features a massive Grand Hall with a 65-foot barrel-vaulted ceiling and stained glass windows. The 11.5-acre train shed was a stub-end terminal that was the world's largest roof span at the time of its opening. At its peak, the station was one of the world's busiest, hosting 22 different railroads. In the 1940s it handled 100,000 passengers a day.

The existing Gateway Transportation Center is three blocks to the southeast of Union Station (one light rail stop).
