Built by Southern, Norfolk & Western and Winston-Salem Southbound railroads as North Carolina's largest train station in North Carolina's largest city. The "T-shaped" building was one of the most complete and attractive stations in the south. This is the only multi-storey train station in the state. The station featured large waiting rooms, checked baggage service, a restaurant and a travelers aid shop with newspapers, cigars and other items. The first floor was used for baggage rooms and offices for the Southeastern and American Railway Express companies and the second floor was used for Southern Railway Company offices and a kitchen. The third floor was a passenger waiting room. Unfortunately, Southern Railway Company demolished the southern wing waiting room in 1974. This is the best preserved historic train station in North Carolina. The current owners plan to rebuild the demolished wing and expand the existing facility as a multi-modal transportation center, with a convention center, retail, parking deck, museum and a high-rise condo & office tower.
