Re: Tuscarora Almanac for May 14

Posted by Steve B-8AVEXP on Sat May 14 08:34:22 2022, in response to Tuscarora Almanac for May 14, posted by IRTRedbirdR33 on Sat May 14 07:03:14 2022.

I posted this Book of Last Runs entry a year or so ago during May, but can't remember the exact date.

South Bend's Union Station closed in May of 1971 when Amtrak came into being. They decided not to use Union Station and built a new station on the western outskirts of town, which was shared by South Shore trains. Union Station was boarded up and abandoned. it was subsequently bought and renovated, and today is a communications center. It has also served as a banquet facility. There has been talk of relocating the South Shore's South Bend terminus to Union Station, and the building's owner is on board, so to speak, with the idea.
