I travel a lot on Amtrak and this is not the best station for accesability. The signage is lacking for boarding an de-boarding. You have to take an underpass to far side of the tracks. This slows down boarding, waiting for people to realize they...More

On the train to DC to Chicago this attractive stop was one of the first. Charming looking place. Another time would go and stay there awhile. Glad I have seen just a little of West Virginia via thr train anyway. Love Amtrak. Please keep going.

This station drives you back to the future, it’s interesting to understand a little bit about how things used to work back in the days. The track goes right in thru the mountains.

This is a great place to watch trains go by all day. The station was restored to full historic value and is enriched with local history.

Great place to sit and rest. Restrooms available. Neat old train station. Train goes by often so you will probably see it.

This is a good place to rest your legs when walking Harpers Ferry. There's a little bit of history, restrooms, and LOTS of conversation about Monopoly between kids.

Nice little station sadly somewhat under its potential, why not use it as a cafe or place to sit and read? And as we have visited here three times since May 2016 the roadwork blocks the access and the parking possibilities. The station has its...More
