Of the many passenger stations and freight depots that stood in Atlanta at one time or another, only three survive today: Peachtree Station, the Georgia Railroad Freight Depot, and a small Atlanta & West Point freight depot. The great passenger structures, Terminal Station and Union Station, were demolished in the early 1970s. Most of the freight depots were also torn down, usually replaced by parking lots. The city that was created to be a rail center has few existing reminders of its railroading past.
