Grand Jct, CO
Home<Amtrak<Grand Junction, CO
The Grand Junction Amtrak Station is currently located in a modern fairly plain looking station building. It was originally built in the 1970s as a restaurant. Originally Amtrak use the original station building that is still adjacent to the platform moved out in 1992. That original turn of the century Denver and Rio Grande Railroad station is completely falling apart and there is a fenced enclosure.[1] The station is a service stop for the California Zephyr and the quite modern station building (that does still have wooden benches) also includes a small store as well as a ticket window. The station platform is almost fully separated from the street (with the exception of one small alley) by buildings and fences.

(grand_jct8) A view of the interior of the waiting room at Grand Junction, CO. It seems extremely old fashioned even though the building was built in the 1970s and became the Amtrak station in the 1990s.

(grand_jct10) The historic station building that is falling apart at Grand Jct, CO. There is a for sale sign on it and old Grand Junction lettering. It also claims that the population is only 28,000. The current number is almost double that.

(grand_jct12) Another view of the original station house at Grand Junction, CO. It looks to be in surprisingly good shape from the outside. I have a feeling some restoration work has been preformed.
