Fargo, ND Amtrak station is located on the northern side only a few blocks from the center of downtown. The station is located at a grade along a trackway that passes with grade crossings basically directly through downtown Fargo. There is also a freight line on the southern side of downtown that passes through at a grade, causing traffic jams, but no longer has any passenger service although it appears that the former train station house for that route has been turned into regular shops. The current station is located in a small, but quite older looking building. It faces a long and quite wide platform, it is opened also only in the middle of the night and is a service stop when the Empire Builder passes through town.
