Faits

  • There is no echo inside the building...the walls are lined with cork.
  • Before the station was officially opened, Hollywood made use of the facility when Paramount Studio ran the first train out of the station as a nationwide promotion for its film “Union Pacific”.
  • The station was built in what was Chinatown.
  • Opening dedication ceremonies performed by Los Angeles Mayor Fletcher Bowron and California Governor Culbert Olson.
  • California's Spanish heritage can be seen throughout the terminal: mission tile roofs, arcades, arches, stucco walls and wood-beamed ceilings.
  • Built through the cooperation of three major railroads in the LA area: Southern Pacific, Union Pacific and the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe.
  • Often seen in movies. “The Way We Were”, “Blade Runner” and “Guilty By Suspicion” are amongst the many feature films that have used the station as a shooting location.
  • The station opened May 1939 amidst three days of parades, celebrations and pageantry.
  • In 1944. 26 trains departed daily from 16 tracks. Presently a weekday will see 74 departures from 10 tracks.
  • Located across the street from Olvera Street, where Los Angeles was founded in the 18th Century.
  • To return the station to its original grandeur, the property was purchased in 1990 by Catellus Development.
