A union station (also known as a union terminal and, in Europe, a joint station) is a railway station at which the tracks and facilities are shared by two or more separate railway companies, allowing passengers to connect conveniently between them. The term ‘union station’ is used in North America and ‘joint station’ is used in Europe.
In the U.S., union stations are typically used by all the passenger trains serving a city, although exceptions exist. For example, in Chicago, the Illinois Central and Chicago & North Western depots coexisted with Union Station, and although most Metra commuter trains (and all Amtrak services) continue to use Union Station today, some lines depart from other terminals, such as Millennium Station.
The busiest station to be named “Union Station” is Toronto Union Station, which serves over 72 million passengers annually.

Google translate looks a little different:
English / Russian
keep tahoe blue / держать тахо синий (derzhat’ takho siniy)
Not sure where the difference comes from. Good to see people caring about the environment, in any case.
But there are a great many more tales that take place every single day at what has become an iconic and notorious Mile High City location. A lot of them are sad. Others are crazy. And as visitors to the Instagram account dubbed McShelter Denver know full well, plenty are both at the same time.
Posts like this one soon attracted a sizable audience. Quite a few of the page’s 500-plus Instagram followers have gigs in the area, too, and they’ve come to see McShelter Denver as a prime source of hyper-local news.
Law enforcers and emergency personnel are hip to the pages, too. McSD reveals, “We tagged the police department, Denver Health and the fire department, and they’ve become followers. We’ll call things in, but they’ll also respond to a live stream.”

Denver is so expensive that teachers have to get creative to make ends meet
For 14 months, teachers in Denver have been negotiating with Denver Public Schools for more pay. On Saturday, the Denver Classroom Teachers Association said talks had broken off and they’ll walk on Monday.
