Also, reports are that a third daily Piedmont will start in June. Combined with the Carolinian, this will provide four daily Charlotte-Raleigh frequencies.
I don't think anyone will really miss the 1950 Southern station that Amtrak has been using since 1986, but if so, get your photos now. It will be torn down in a few months so that the NS freight main line can be relocated. Ironically the 1942 Seaboard station (used by Amtrak 1971-1986) and the 1890 Union Station will outlive the Southern station. The 1942 and 1890 stations were repurposed.
The Southern station has a unique after-thought picture window corridor outside of the brick building. I like it, but it's unsuitable for the traffic it sees. I found the repurposed 1942 station, now home to Logan's One Stop Garden Shop. I can't find the 1890 station. Where is it? EDIT: Oh my. It's not that ugly building on the corner of Dawson & Martin, is it?
They didn't keep much of that "historic brick warehouse" did they? Barely kept the shape.
