On Monday October 24th we took a tour of the soon-to-reopen Union Station building in Springfield to have a look at the progress to date.
The historic building, which has been vacant for many years, will start to return to service in January 2017 — as an intermodal rail and bus station.
As the images below show, a lot of progress has been made — but clearly, a lot of detail work still has to take place over the next few months before the historic station building can re-open to the public.
Due to the limited amount of time that was available for this tour we were unable to spend any time reviewing the current platform situation at track level. We will review this topic in a future posting.
