History
Opened1930
Closed1970 (demolished 1972)

The Union Station built in 1930 in Atlanta was the smaller of two principal train stations in downtown, Terminal Station being the other (the latter served Southern Railway, Seaboard Air Line, Central of Georgia (including the Nancy Hanks to Savannah), and the Atlanta and West Point). It was the third "union station" or "union depot" (usage varied in the 19th century), succeeding the 1853 station, burned in mid-November 1864 when Federal forces left Atlanta for the March to the Sea, and the 1871 station.

Overview

The station was located over the tracks between Forsyth and Spring Streets, 3 blocks west and 1 block south of the predecessor union stations. The site is the block immediately west of Five Points MARTA station.

Opening in 1930, the third Union Station served the Georgia Railroad, Atlantic Coast Line (previously the Atlanta, Birmingham and Coast Railroad), and Louisville and Nashville (previously the Nashville, Chattanooga and St. Louis Railway). It replaced earlier stations on the same site.

Major trains and destinations:

  • Atlantic Coast Line -in partnership with L&N:
    • The Dixie FlaglerChicago, via Chattanooga, TN, Nashville, TN and Evansville, IN; continuing south to Jacksonville and Miami, FL
    • The Dixie Flyer – Chicago, via Chattanooga, TN, Nashville, TN and Evansville, IN; continuing south to Jacksonville and Tampa, FL - the last ACL or L&N passenger train from Atlanta directly into Florida, ended in 1965
  • Louisville and Nashville:
    • The FlamingoCincinnati, via Knoxville, TN; continuing south to Jacksonville, FL, via Albany
    • The GeorgianChicago, via Nashville and Evansville
    • The Southland - Cincinnati, via Knoxville, TN; continuing south to Trilby, FL, then branching to various points in Florida. This train traveled to Terminal Station before going south to Trilby and Florida.

After the tenant railroads of Union Station had discontinued all their passenger trains—the last such train operated on April 30, 1971, the day before Amtrak came into existence—the station was razed in 1972. Remnants of the platform may be seen behind the Atlanta Journal Constitution building although construction of Underground Atlanta and MARTA largely obliterated the site.
