Dallas Union Terminal

Dallas, TX

Dallas Union Terminal was built in 1916 on a design by Jarvis Hunt and served as many as 80 trains per day at it's peak. For-profit passenger service terminated in 1969 and Amtrak began using the facility in 1974, when it appears to have received its last major renovation. The upper level waiting room is used as a meeting space for the Hyatt Regency Hotel, on the other side of the tracks.
