3 of us caught the Amtrak from Memphis to New Orleans and the service and ease of checking in at Memphis Station was great. Keep in mind no bags over 50pound (23 kg). Place was clean and felt safe.

This place is small but has restroom, information desk and a place inside to wait for a ride. I couldn't ask for anything more. I also saw lots of cabs waiting for new arrivals.

Amtrak runs south from Memphis and New Orleans ... and North to Chicago. The station itself is interesting for its architecture. It is usually empty, however. A smaller station adjacent to the old station is the place to board the trains.

Visiting Memphis Central Station you almost feel like you have taking a trip back in time to the 1960's. Very nostalgic!

Pros: Beautifully renovated train station with excellent Train Museum downstairs. Get a tour from one of the museum volunteers! Cons: A bit out of the way, but worth the walk down South Main.

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
