Fort Worth Texas is home to the Santa Fe Station. This building is part of the Fort Worth Union Depot and displays a large Santa Fe rooftop sign. The Santa Fe Station was built in 1938.

Most recently, the building housed the Santa Fe Rail Market, which was modeled after other public markets such as the one in Seattle, WA. Unfortunately, the market met its demise in early 2005.
