King Street Station

Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn speaks during a reopening of the main waiting room of the King Street Station Wednesday, April 24, 2013, in Seattle. The historic waiting room at Seattle's King Street rail station has been restored to look exactly as it did when it opened in 1906 with its ornamental plaster ceiling, Corinthian columns, mosaic floor tiles and a massive bronze chandelier. It was reopened for Amtrak passengers Wednesday, following a $55 million project that began after the city purchased the landmark downtown building in 2008 from Burlington Northern Santa Fe. Other upgrades included a new roof and structural reinforcement to help the building and its clock tower withstand an earthquake. The city Transportation Department says the work was funded by city, state and federal funds including the Bridging the Gap levy.(AP Photo/Elaine Thompson)
