The Clifton Forge Amtrak station is located at 307 East Ridgeway Street in Clifton Forge, Virginia. It is served by Amtrak's Cardinal route, and is the westernmost station in Virginia along this route.

Clifton Forge station is a two-story clapboard structure originally built by the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway (C&O) in 1902; it sits just east of a major locomotive fuel facility for CSX Transportation. In 2013, Amtrak announced that it plans to move the station to a replica C&O station built by the Chesapeake and Ohio Historical Society.[1]
