Inside Indianapolis Union Station

Indianapolis Union Station is no longer a working train station. Union Station Indy is now known as the Crowne Plaza Grand Hall and Conference Center. The Amtrak & Greyhound station are just around the corner from that location.

I recorded this video after the 2013 Midwest High Speed Rail Association Fall Meeting. At no point while I was hanging out in the area did I see any attendees exploring this piece of history.

I stayed at the Omni Severin Hotel – which is located right across a driveway from Union Station.

“Amtrak, the national rail passenger carrier, continues to serve Union Station from a waiting area beneath the train shed.”

“Indianapolis Union Station was the first union station in the world, opening on September 20, 1853”

“A Crowne Plaza Hotel took up much of the western portion of the train shed, with twenty six of its rooms being housed within old Pullman cars.”
