Seattle Union Station

wpid5590-AU0E5556.jpgThe main station in Seattle is King Street Station.  It is served by the Coaster commuter trains and the Cascades service that runs from Oregon up to Vancouver in British Columbia.  What I didn’t know is that there used to be another station nearby.  Union Station ceased to have rail service many years ago and deteriorated over time.  However, as part of a redevelopment program in the area, the building has been restored and now is part of a larger development area.

      Thanks Steve. Hopefully you are now more mobile so won’t have to spend so much time looking at stuff like my blog and can get back to building a plane. Can’t wait for that first flight!
