trains..

This past weekend, ICDC took the train home from Union Station.  Despite its somewhat grungy interior (don't worry, there is a $7 billion - yep, with a "b" - improvement project ongoing), the exterior of that place is striking for its architecture and beauty.  The proudly waving American flags, topped by flying eagles make Districters proud to come home.


The "Union" - at least the one in DC - got ICDC thinking about other train stations in the US and the world.  

Where are the most beautiful?
