Update: The train shed was converted into a convention center and aquarium.
Such an amazing space, and in my opinion much more useful as a wide open space, clear of impediments.
We will see what the future holds for the train shed.

It IS such an amazing and simply breathtaking space!I recall us driving WAA Downtown in the '40s and very early '50s to pick up visiting relatives (not all lived on the MoPac line to use our own Kirkwood station – or Frisco, for that matter, to use the Webster station).It is so immense even now – imagine how it was to a small kid then! And of course, it was full of trains, and some even still STEAM-POWERED! Oh, the joy!OT, but my late Grandfather was an engineer on the MOP from the 'late '90s until the mid-'30s. He did drive some the line's passenger trains, but I dunno which.
