The trolly tracks are paved over and today it houses the city bus company.

Great usage for a beautiful old building. Again, a really nice comparison shot.

They did a masterful reconstruction of the Union Station.

Thanks for sharing with us.

Too bad that bus is in the way. I could have had some real fun with this picture.

There must be quite a few Union Stations in the US. I don't know the significance of the name. There is one in Portland but it looks nothing like the one in these photos.

This is a great comparison between "then" and "now". I think it is very appropriate in the now shot to include a hybrid powered bus. That is definitely a sign of the now times and a sign of the future. Haven't seen any hybrid buses in Portland but lots of other hybrid vehicles.

Great job.

Cal
