Taking the Train: Union Passenger Station, El Paso

Travelers can drive, fly, and cycle into the region, but there's another option as well, the train.  Amtrak's Sunset Limited route runs from New Orleans to Los Angeles stops both in El Paso and Alpine.

El Paso's Union Passenger Station on the edge of downtown (pictured here) dates back to 1904, with a lovely restoration completed in 1982.  Bright, airy, and clean, this is a beautiful structure inside and out.

Also in the neighborhood is El Paso's Railroad and Transportation Museum.  To learn more, click here.
