Los Angeles Union Station (LAUS) is the main railway station in Los Angeles, California, and the largest railroad passenger terminal in the Western United States. It is opened in May 1939 as the Los Angeles Union Passenger Terminal, replacing La Grande Station and Central Station.
Approved in a controversial ballot measure in 1926 and built in the 1930s, it served to consolidate rail services from a number of railroads (the Union Pacific, Santa Fe, and Southern Pacific) into one terminal station. Conceived on a grand scale, Union Station became known as the "Last of the Great Railway Stations" built in the United States. It was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.
Today, the station is a major transportation hub for Southern California, serving almost 110,000 passengers a day (wikipedia).
Los Angeles Union Station (LAUS) Los Angeles kentinin ana tren istasyonu ve batı Birleşik Devletlerdeki en büyük yolcu istasyonudur. Mayıs 1939'da La Grande Station ve Central Station yıkılarak yerine yapılmıştır.
Los angeles kentinin en eski yerleşim bölgesi istasyon ve civarıdır. Yoğun olarak latin kökenli halkın yaşadığı bölgede istasyona yakın konumdaki "Nuestra Senora Reina de Los Angeles" görülmeye değer.r
