Directly behind this GRTC Pulse station, the clock tower of Main Street Station soars 110 feet into the Richmond sky, alongside the elevated lanes of northbound I-95. The French Renaissance-style station was built in 1901 by the Seaboard Air Line and Chesapeake & Ohio railroads and is now a National Historic Landmark. Today, you can catch Amtrak trains from this location to travel east to Newport News or head north to Washington DC, Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York City or Boston. You’re also welcome to go inside the station and view Richmond railroad-related photographs and artwork, train travel memorabilia, and the restored 100,000-square-foot train shed, which is one of the last surviving train sheds of its type in the country. The Commonwealth of Virginia operates an official Welcome Center inside Main Street Station, where you can pick up maps and travel information.
