“Model Railroads in the Basement...”
Reviewed May 31, 2009

There are model railroads in the basement of the historic station. Take the elevator down to the basement and check out the Platte Valley & Western Model Railroad Club (open every Friday night) and the Denver Society of Model Railroaders (open the last Friday night of the month). Both clubs illustrate Rocky Mountain Railroading in the 1950s (the transition era of railroading).

“Step into History”
Reviewed April 10, 2001

As you enter this building you are suddenly swept into a time in history when people and families travelled the nation by train. As you see the massive room with its solid oak benches with 5' high stiff backs, you picture whole families anxiously waiting the sound of an approaching steam engine. There isn't a modern peice of equipment in site and the experience of sitting in that room with my loved one will remain with me forever. Food and entertainment at the adjoining redfish restaurant is memorable and it can be very rewarding if you go down to the basement. I'll never forget Union Station in Denver.
