Little Rock (Amtrak station)
The Little Rock Amtrak station(a.k.a.; Little Rock Union Station) is a train station in Little Rock, Arkansas, United States served by Amtrak, the national railroad passenger system.
The present Little Rock station was opened August 1, 1921, having been constructed by Missouri Pacific Railroad after a fire destroyed the prior station on April 7, 1920. The present structure utilized existing foundation, some exterior walls and the clock tower of the previous station, components which had survived the fire. The station is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as "Mopac Station".
Although known as Union Station, this particular structure was used by only a single railroad, Missouri Pacific. Prior structures on this site were served by two additional railroads, Memphis & Little Rock (1874-1893) and Cotton Belt (ca. 1892-1910). The present (1921) structure was predated by a large wooden structure erected in 1874, and a brick station opened in 1909 and which burned in 1920.
The main entrance to Union Station was located on the Markham Street level, and waiting rooms, ticket office and a restaurant were located on this level. The upper two floors housed the railroad's train dispatchers and offices of the freight and passenger departments, American Refrigerator Transit, and the Pullman Company. The basement (track level) held extensive mail and Railway Express facilities, a baggage room, and a small dining car commissary. Passenger access to the tracks was via an open air midway extending from the north side of the building, with stairways and three umbrella sheds extending in each direction at track level. This midway structure was original to the 1908 station, having survived the 1920 fire. Missouri Pacific passenger service to Little Rock ended just after midnight on May 1, 1971. The remaining umbrella sheds and midway were dismantled in October 1973, less than six months before Amtrak began a new passenger route through Little Rock. Amtrak continued to use the original waiting room and ticket office area until July 1992, when the waiting area and ticket offices were relocated to a newly renovated area of the station located at track level.

Train to Forgotten Jacksonville and Saint Augustine | United States Forum | Fodor's Travel Talk Forums
*What Do You Mean Forgotten?* As a boy learning about US history, what seemed to be described as earliest European settlement in the US included the Pilgrims arriving in Plymouth Rock, with a certain emphasis on Williamsburg and Jamestown as well. I have some recollection of a mention of a failed colony (Roanoke Rapids?) in North Carolina that was described as first, that pre-dated the above-mentioned settlements in the 1590s. But curiously enough, unless I zoned out in class, Saint Augustine, established in 1565 over 50 years before pilgrims and some 30 years before even the failed colony, was perhaps not mentioned and certainly not emphasized. Maybe since it initially was Spanish colonization that didn't lead to the formation of the original 13 colonies? Maybe since the Loyalists in Saint Augustine imprisoned and heckled Patriots? Yet it seems to me that the turbulent Spanish->English->Spanish->territory->US history of Saint Augustine is a fascinating tale that is very relevant to the Posted in the United States forum
