This is a convenient place to park when visiting. Easy to get to the lower town sites from here. Right at the river.

The train station was a really cool place to hang out during a particular rain storm. The building is beautiful.

The parking for Harpers ferry is over a mile away but if you park at the train station it’s free but you have to get there early as it fills up quickly. Then the walk is close to all museums and restaurants.

A working train station with lots of history. Also, if you arrive early enough, free parking! The views are awesome, and if you are a train buff....even better.

Actually looking for a rest room, but came across the delightful display of local history. Well worth going in and having a look. Also great chance for a photograph down the rail tracks towards the tunnel.

I travel a lot on Amtrak and this is not the best station for accesability. The signage is lacking for boarding an de-boarding. You have to take an underpass to far side of the tracks. This slows down boarding, waiting for people to realize they...More

On the train to DC to Chicago this attractive stop was one of the first. Charming looking place. Another time would go and stay there awhile. Glad I have seen just a little of West Virginia via thr train anyway. Love Amtrak. Please keep going.
