Railroad stations

Railroad stations

Buildings that were part of a transportation system of rail lines. Of the approximately 40,000 stations, which served the nation during the height of the railroad era, an estimated 20,000 still remain, of which most await rehabilitation. The railway station was usually built as the gateway into the city to impress arriving passengers with its economic and social character. With the demise of the passenger train as a prime means of transportation, railroad stations have become redundant structures. Today many are underused or abandoned. Because of their location in or near the centers of towns and cities they once served, they are excellent opportunities for adaptive use or even reused as passenger stations.
