The Cleburne Intermodal Transportation Depot is an Amtrak train station in Cleburne, Texas, United States. According to Amtrak's official website, for many years, Cleburne was the site of a major locomotive backshop of the Santa Fe, and many shop buildings can be seen on the east side of the track. The former 1898-built Santa Fe shops were scaled down from two floors to one, and were torn down during the 1990s to make way for a road improvement project.[2]

Cleburne's current intermodal station was built in 1999 and serves both Amtrak and local bus transit. In recent history, the station has become less prestigious and the surrounding buildings have become mostly abandoned. The intermodal transportation depot itself no longer has an Amtrak agent, meaning that if one would like to board a train he must either purchase a ticket by phone, online, or at another nearby Amtrak station - Fort Worth is 29 miles away. Tickets can also be purchased from the conductor on board the train.
