Located on the north edge of downtown Portland, Union Station is the local home to Amtrak. We traveled on the Amtrak Cascades to Seattle. What a beautiful ride! We passed through beautiful countrysides, lakes with flyfishers trying to make a catch and small towns with...More

I took my Coaster liner from Portland to L.A from here. The building is nice and the service is good. There are a bathroom zone, a bar-easy groceries shop and a waiting zone for passengers. All very clean.

A historic building currently being used as intended - a working rail station. The outside is well kept with awnings over the windows and lovely landscaping. Inside features original wood benches, signs, desks etc... Small but worth a stop if you enjoy historic train stations.

Step into the past in this classic train station. There is also the opportunity to visit the second floor to view photos taken over the years of the station and old Portland.

We took the train back to Vancouver, BC and so were here as passengers. It's an old station, perhaps not a lot to see inside, but we were processed quickly and were comfortable while waiting. No restaurant but there are vending machines.

We took the Empire Builder to Spokane and loved the journey. The roomette was comfortable and clean. We sat back and watched the scenery go by as dinner was served to us. Smooth ride and great service. I am definitely taking it again.
