In the early 1900s travelers could go anywhere by train. America s train stations provided a doorway to the world becoming the heart of each community. They were part of everyday life serving as a backdrop for many mileposts in our country s history. From these stations loved ones tearfully said goodbye as soldiers departed for two World Wars and cheered these heroes on their return. Presidential candidates criss-crossed the country bringing their message to the people from each station s platform.
