Union Station’s busiest time was during World War II, when 300 passengers came through per day. Its ghosts are believed to have come from this time. Suggs Mailer is the most well-known spirit here, a man whose job it was to transfer mail from underground trains to the post office by way of a hand-powered truck. After he retired, the man mysteriously disappeared, never to be heard from again. His shadow has been seen in the basement. Employees also say a ghostly lady in a black dress walks down the stairs after hours, and other apparitions carrying suitcases have been seen in the hallways. A phantom train whistle also has been heard.
