The train station in Omaha, NE is currently a very simple brick station building that opened in 1983. The remains though of what the Omaha station used to be loom, almost ghostly (particularly from trains being serviced in the station, often in the middle of the night) over the current bare-bones station building. The large Chicago, Burlington & Quincy (CB&Q) depot that opened in 1898 is currently abandoned with many features of what must have been once a grand station building viewable from stopped Zephyr trains. The stop is where the conductors change, and other servicing is done.
