New Orleans Union Passenger Terminal

Louisiana shortline

The New Orleans Union Passenger Terminal (NOUPT) was opened in 1954 to consolidate passenger rail operations from the Crescent City's other railroad stations. It was one of the last union stations built in the United States, and bears the mark of the era's architectural style. Today it serves as a southern hub for Amtrak operations, including the City of New Orleans, the Crescent, and the Sunset Limited.
