The firm of MacDonald and Couchot designed this 6,068 square-foot terminal in the usual Spanish Colonial Revival idiom common for Southern Pacific stations in the 1910s-1930s. In 2007, it continued to function as an Amtrak Station and as the hub in the regional transit system.

This small, Spanish Colonial railroad station was listed on the National Register of Historic Places and the City of Glendale Historic Registry. It has been used as a backdrop for several Hollywood films.
