Union Station, 1970s and 1980s

Postby Munchabunch » Wed Jul 19, 2017 5:32 pm

In the 1970s, Amtrak and the commuter railroads built a new Union Station building in Washington, DC somewhere near where Sbarro is now located, which they used until around 1988. I have a few memories of changing trains here, but I would like to find some good photographs and/or floor plans of the building. So far, all I have been able to find are a few grainy pictures at the following URL:

Does anyone know where I can see some floor plans or decent photos of this "replacement station"?
