The Santa Cruz Union Depot, also called the Santa Cruz Depot or the Union Depot, on Washington Street near Pacific. It was built in 1893 after Southern Pacific leased the South Pacific Coast railroad. Next to the depot are several carriages (called hotel buses) and a streetcar waiting to pick up arriving visitors. South Pacific Coast Railroad Number 20 has just pulled in.
