A $243 million renovation of the St. Paul Union Depot is completed, and the downtown St. Paul facility will reopen to transit riders on Saturday, kicked off with an open house for the public.

Train service to the depot ended 41 years ago, but will resume next year.

Here's a look at the depot from a historical perspective.
