Toledo, OH is a city in western Ohio which has two Amtrak round-trips a day, the Capital and Lake Shore Limiteds stopping in the wee hours of the night or early morning to the portions of what hasn't been abandoned of the old Railroad Hub. There is also connecting bus service (provided by an Amtrak chartered motorcoach, not Greyhound) to Michigan, running all the way to East Lansing, this has replaced the Lake Citys which was a local train running from Toledo to Chicago via Chicago and last ran in 1994-1995. The Pennsylvanian also stopped at the station from November 7, 1998 to January 27, 2003 when it was extended to Chicago to accommodate Amtrak's Express Shipping business. The station has low-level platforms with quite old looking metal canopies over all of the platforms most of which have been abandoned. There is even an area with two abandoned stub-end platforms to the east of the large brick station building. There were definitely underpasses at one time into the large brick station building (called Union Terminal) built in 1950 as well as an overpass to the building that is still in existence but has no public access. Passengers get out to the far track using wooden level crossings. The current waiting room is on the first floor and moved there in 1990s, orginally it was located on the third floor and led out to an overpass to the platforms. Inside the Amtrak waiting area of the station building is a nice large waiting room with a ticket window and baggage office and a colorful floor, along with black padded benches for waiting.
