The Only Thing Pointless Is The Arrow on Flickr.
Electric sign on the front of the Amtrak depot in Tacoma, Washington; ca. 2004. Many of my trips to Portland began and ended here at this nondescriptly modern depot on Puyallup Avenue (the depot was built in 1983 to replace the cavernous and decrepit Union Station on Pacific Avenue). It is also a station stop for Northwestern Trailways bus service from the Tacoma Greyhound Station (just down the street) to Spokane via Seattle, Everett, and Wenatchee.
With the change in Amtrak’s corporate identity, the “Pointless Arrow” sign was taken down and replaced with the current “Wave” logo and matching script.
As seen on “The Consumerist”.
