Lancaster's Amtrak Train Station is an architectural gem. Built in 1929, it is a familiar and dignified landmark in the city of Lancaster, PA.
Its Art Deco marble interior is reminiscent, on a small scale, of Grand Central Station in New York City. Lancaster is the third busiest train station in Pennsylvania, after Philadelphia and Harrisburg.
The main lobby features a soaring ceiling with art deco lighting fixtures and a magnificent glass paned ceiling insert.
Over the past decade, restoration has been ongoing, including painting and improvements to the heating system.
The building will now be air conditioned. Shops and restaurants will be built, and the parking lot enlarged.
Ridership at the Amtrak Station is up 17% just since May due to the increased cost of driving!
The current $12 Million renovation is scheduled to be completed by June of 2010.
