I got showed around the building. We saw the big clock. Officer AJ said that at least 10 or 20 people ask him where the big clock is every day because most people meet there. We also got a look from the upstairs of Union Station which was a pretty good view of Union Station.
That's where we met Rob who has worked in train operations for 22 years and is a complance officer. He came with us on the train.
