    The term “Meet me under the clock” came from when a man and a woman were in love and the would always meet under the clock. One day while waiting, the man had a massive heart attack and died. when his lover found him she cried for help but to no avail. It was to late. Even though this sounds like a tragic tale from a story, it actually happened in Union Station history
