      Stepping into Los Angeles Union Station is very much like stepping back in time to the 1940s, in hopes of catching a glimpse of a Hollywood starlet disembarking from a steam-powered train.

      Union Station is the last great rail station built during the heyday of rail travel in the U.S., before the surgeance of interstate highways and commercial airplanes. It is also one of the most well-preserved stations in the country.

      Erected in the 1930s, the station was designed to be distinctly Californian in look and feel, replete with vaulted ceilings, marble mosaics, Spanish tiles and serene courtyards.

      Its architecture is a unique blend of Spanish Mission Revival and Art Deco that sets it apart from the great rail stations of America’s East Coast and Midwest.
