Panel Twelve

All the original City Hall murals having been shown, this full-color panel wraps up the series of twelve Union Station artworks. Very simply, it shows a caboose -- the end of the line, surrounded by abundant, beautiful flowers, some native Texas wildflowers. The train car is from a passenger line that rode through Union Station called "The Texas Special." In a final allusion to "union" -- the early converging of passenger trains at Union Station, the union of old murals and new information, the union of DART light rail with Amtrak at Union Station -- the final quote states "All your strength is in your union. All your danger is in discord. Therefore be at peace henceforward, and as brothers live together." It is from Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.
