The Auburn Station is an Amtrak station serving as the northern terminus of the Capitol Corridor, at the corner of Nevada Street and Fulweiler Street in Auburn, California. The station is not staffed. The platform is next to a short spur track off of Track 2 of Union Pacific's route over Donner Pass. Because of the geography of the city, the Union Pacific's mainline tracks are split, with Track 1 running through the eastern side of the city and Track 2 crossing the western side of the city.[2] The California Zephyr bypasses the city on its route between Roseville and Colfax primarily via Track 1. Auburn became a stop on Amtrak's Capitol Corridor in January 1998.[2]

Of the 74 California stations served by Amtrak, Auburn was the 45th-busiest in FY2012, boarding or detraining an average of about 78 passengers daily.[3]
