Here's a version of Guess the British Station for people on this side of the pond.
In this game, you must provide the hints. In the other version here, you must provide images.

Rules

1) You can only post hints if you guess the previous station correctly or if somebody passes their turn to you.
2) The station must be within a US state (that's the lower 48 states, Alaska, or Hawaii) (this also means no Puerto Rico, etc.)
3) The station must not be a) a preserved line station or b) urban transport system station (e.g. NYC subway, Boston's T, etc.)
4) When guessing, the city must be named as well (saying Union Station is not enough, as there are over 40 Union Stations in the US).
5) The station must be a passenger station.

(Credit to Griff for the rules, I hope he doesn't mind).

I'll start.

Here's an easy one:

-Two thirds of all rail passengers in the US use this station
-This station is on the Northeast Corridor.

Do we really need two US Station games?

Nope, but you are very very close.

OK, this one might be a lot harder:

It was a station for the CB&Q, Milwaukee Road, and the DRI Line.

No. It is a bit smaller than that. Quite a bit.

PS It's your turn in the image version of this game, Railwaymodeler.

Not Minneapolis/St Paul.

The station is no longer used, but still stands. Just figure out what the DRI Line was and you should get it!

Apparently it is Davenport Union Station, in Davenport, Iowa.

as has it correct! I grew up as a kid in Davenport, Iowa, and seen the still standing station many, many times!

By the way, the DRI Line I referred to was the Davenport, Rock Island & Northwestern Railroad. The school bus driver I had in fourth grade, was a former employee of that railroad and a big Rock Island Line fan too!

I had many cab rides on the DRI Line when I was young.
