Union Terminal no longer needed as a Railroad station was vacant for a while and now finally made available the Cincinnati Museum, just like the dark clouds here are giving way to bright new blue sky's. Makes a great gift for those visiting Cincinnati.
During its heyday as a station, Union Terminal saw 216 trains per day. While it had a brief revival in the 1940s because of World War II, it began to decline in the 1950s and 1960s. By the first Amtrak train operations in 1971, service was reduced to just two trains a day, the George Washington and the James Whitcomb Riley. The terminal was abandoned for transportation purposes in 1972 in favor of a much smaller passenger rail station built by Amtrak on the city�s riverfront (now demolished).
