I have taken the train from here many times. They offer free donuts and coffee while you wait for the train. There is parking right by the tracks and there is a police substation there so you feel safe leaving your vehicle. First come first serve on the parking.

I saw pictures on line of the old Central station with its 10 tracks and many trains ready to go. When I arrived I was pleased with the station interior renovations, completed very tastefully and professionally. I walked out on the lower deck which used to contain 5 tracks and the sign still leads you to believe that but to... More

My review title is more for the overseas visitor, I doubt many tourist from the UK will visit this train station or use Amtrak trains as their mode of transport. The station itself is basic but the building slightly grand, on my late night visit our train was delayed, the station area was safe and a full time police station... More

The station was lovely - a step back in time. Great oak benches and tile floors - friendly service even at 5:45 in the AM ... The only complaint would be the baggage claim. Checking in was easy but on the return trip coming off a full train the baggage claim was a bit crazy - surely there is a... More

not a lot at the station but it does get you down to go look at the water, free bus turns there so you won't get lost! Very clean and up todate.. not really an attraction though

I love this place, it has a farmers market, a place to hold fundraisers, rental rooms, music performances at the farmers market, there is a train museum(small entry fee) there as well, oh and you can even catch a train there as well.

A wonderfully informative Train &Trolly museum is housed in the same building. Great exhibits, working switchboards, even Thomas the Train area for kids. Phase One completed and donations for admissions go to Phase Two.

Anyone with a passing interest in American railroads and/or social history will adore a short visit here. Although a functioning station, the place is frozen in time. The booking hall and waiting room, adorned with photos and memorabilia from an age in which the railroad boomed, are testament to American confidence in travel and trade. Loved the operator's steps up... More

Great establishment where we had enough room to eat, dance, mingle, and have a great time. It was in a great location. We had a security guard there for us. We were able to catch the trolley from this location and hang out on Beal St.
