New Amtrak Station Going Up in Elyria




The Amtrak station in Elyria is no more. Here are some shots taken on Sunday showing the remains of the original structure (top and bottom photographs) and the foundation being installed for a new brick waiting room (middle photograph) that will be similar to the one in Alliance, Ohio.

Something had to be done as little progress has been made for Amtrak to use the former New York Central station that has seen millions of tax dollars used for is restoration.

Despite that, Lorain County Commissioners do not allow any of the interior space to be used for bus service.
