KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The historic Union Station clock returns to its post, but in a different location Tuesday morning.

The clock was damaged in a storm last year and had to be removed for repairs. It is expected to be fully installed by 11 a.m.

CEO and President of Union Station George Guastello says the clock dates back to the mid-1880s. When it was first installed in Kansas City, it was placed downtown on Grand Street. Then in the 1930s it was moved to the front of Union Station to greet everyone in Kansas City. It remained there until it was damaged in January 2015.

"What we wanted to do was change up the new beautiful area in the front of the station," Guastello said. "We now have this new historic area."
