Arcadia (Los Angeles Metro station)
|Address||200 N First Avenue, Arcadia|
Arcadia Station is a future light rail station in the Los Angeles County Metro Rail system. It will be located at the intersection of 1st Avenue and Santa Clara Street in Arcadia, California. When it opens, this station will be served by the Metro Gold Line. 
Arcadia was not one of the original stops on the Los Angeles and San Gabriel Valley Railroad. For most of the 20th century, the station comprised a Queen Anne-style passenger depot on 1st Street and a plain freight depot on Santa Anita Avenue. The passenger depot was decommissioned in the 1950s, and relocated in the 1970s to the Fairplex.
In the late 20th century, Arcadia Station was used as a testing ground for a number of special or experimental passenger rail services. After the Pasadena Subdivision was decommissioned in 1994, Arcadia became the destination for Metrolink's Rose Bowl Train on New Year's Day. In 1996, a Sprinter was run from Arcadia to Monrovia. For an unknown period of time, the station was the home of a private railcar called the Pine Bluff until its purchase in the mid-2000s.
