Train Station Clock

This clock was originally installed in the Union Depot train station
located in Troy, New York. It was part of the renovation to the third version of the terminal completed in the early 1900s. The renovation
was executed by the architectural firm Reed & Stern and debuted concepts that would later be used in their already acquired commission for Grand Central Terminal.

Reed & Sterns' early 20th Century renovation reflected popular architectural trends of the period. The sculptural elements surrounding the 30" clockface elegantly demonstrate characteristics consistent with the Beaux Arts movement used throughout the terminal. Fashioned in a white terra cotta, glazed in an emerald green, and divided into sections, the mass of the clock boasts beautifully detailed relief demonstrating classic Grecian motifs.

Size: 7'-4"h x 10'-2"w x 1'-6"d

been powder coated in glossy bright white with polished nickel trim.
