Lincoln, NE is the Amtrak stop in the capital city of Nebraska. The stop has a single platform and is an engineers change locavtion, it is only stopped at during the dead of night. The historic station has been renovated and the main hall turned into a special events space that can hold up to 425. Various other rooms see other uses. Amtrak uses a small side station area for its waiting room and ticket counter with checked baggage service. On the side of this building and just before the plaza with the historic Burlington Route Locomotive #710, is a mural depicting steam travel with a steam engine. Behind the steam engine is a water tower that spews water out of it like a fountain. Between the station platform and large historic building are a number of freight box cars lined up representing historic railroads of the area on display.
