"Union Pacific and Omaha Union Station tells of the development of all Union Pacific Railroad stations in the history of Omaha, Nebraska.
"Once served by seven railroads - between 1866 and 1971, this succession of different station buildings reflected Omaha's growing importance as the nation's fourth-largest railroad center. Special detail is given to the peak years of rail passenger traffic through Omaha, which culminated in the construction of the 1931 Omaha Union Station - America's first Art Deco railroad terminal."
"This is a well thought out, well presented history of the station in Omaha, including the Burlington Route station across the tracks from Union Station. ... combining the scholarly treatment of a research piece with the easy-going style of the popular press." -- The Railroad Station Historical Society Bulletin"
