Germany's next top models practice their runway walk at Union Station — and, yes, we have video!

ARVE Error: need id and provider

It’s not unusual to spot film and TV crews shooting scenes around the region and Union Station is no stranger to being a star.

In fact, it’s such a popular place that Germany’s Next Top Model show today used Union Station as the set for one of the models’ challenges. The challenge: put on a runway show at a working train station.

Hope everyone enjoyed the models’ efforts; perhaps not as exciting as Bane and the Scarecrow in the old ticketing room (“The Dark Knight Rises”) but we’re not complaining. And feel free to suggest new G-rated Metro marketing slogans based on the above video!

  1. The Phantom is growing very tired of Union Station being used for filming, photo shoots and other private events, especially during commute hours. It’s a train station, not a movie set !

  2. 40 minute response time on the pose. That’s pretty good? Nice to see responsiveness with regards to complains!

  3. Let me get this straight. It’s 230 in the afternoon, and the Expo line has just melted down. My train with 100 people on it was just run backwards from Western all the way to USC because of some unexplained problem. The metro ambassadors on this train have no clue, they found the operation center, and they were told the operations center has no clue what’s going on. I’m standing with 200 people who could really use some information from the source. And instead we get this Twaddle? The Expo line has been having problems like this all day, the morning commute was just as bad. This is no way to run around run

    • Hi Hans,

      Our apologies, it seems there was a communication break down when this incident took place. The Expo Line delays were caused by a vehicle blocking the tracks. If the train operator didn’t make any announcements regarding this, please inform Metro’s customer relations via email at or fill out the online form at and let them know your experience. In the meantime, we’ll keep working on getting better updates out to everyone.

      Service is returning to normal, and I hope the rest of your trip is stress free.

    • Hi Hans;

      Absolutely fair point. The info on what was happening with Expo didn’t arrive to us until after that post went up. Nonetheless, I know it looks bad. Thanks for riding and writing,
