The area was not really inviting as a tourist area. There were no outdoor seating areas to sit and wait for trains. We were not purchasing tickets, not boarding the train, nor waiting for passengers. We did not go inside the station as did not know even where the door was located as no signs to indicate. Would have liked to seen the inside area. We stood and waited outside to see Amtrak arrive for the eve stop. The area is well lit. There definitely needs to have some landscaping around the sign area near the station. My daughter is a landscaper, and we both noticed the neglected area by the nice sign. We did enjoy seeing Oscar, as we watch the railway on the rail cam site. It was nice to be safely close to the train tracks as trains went by!

The station was renovated a few years ago and it looks great! It has an old-school 1930’s/1940’s style to it. The station is also a great place for railfanning. Westbound trains push air into the corner for an exciting experience!

This station is the closest Amtrak stop to Kirksville, MO. It serves the Southwest Chief that runs between LA and Chicago. It has been nicely rehabbed and is in good shape. Unfortunately it has no passenger services (i.e. checked baggage), only a caretaker who opens the building so people don't have to wait outside. He was friendly and helpful and even had coffee available for folks that wanted it. The station was clean!!!
