"Salina: Your Opportunity"
Salina's Union Station, built in 1917 at Bishop and 12th Street, broke away from the plain, basic depots typical in Kansas. It sported red brick, a Spanish tile roof and a large control tower. A porte-cochere, an extended roof, sheltered part of the circular driveway leading to the entrance. A lighted sign that read, "Salina: Your Opportunity," welcomed passengers to Salina. The Union Pacific (UP) still uses the depot as a district office.
