The Central Station was built to replace the railroad's Arcade Depot and opened on December 1, 1914. The Union Pacific Railroad, which lost its main Los Angeles train station (built 1891) in a fire, began operating from the station in 1924.
All passenger services were transferred to Union Station, upon that building's completion in 1939.
The Central Station was demolished on August 22, 1956.
