Forty-one years after the last train pulled out of St. Paul's Union Station, the rail hub is ready for trains to return. The landmark station reopens Saturday after a $243 million facelift. The depot will host a new bus hub with intercity bus service returning in 2013, Amtrak trains later in the year, and light rail service in 2014. St. Paul hopes the depot can spark a transportation renaissance for the city.
