The Deming, New Mexico (Amtrak Station) (DEM) is located at 400 East Railroad Boulevard in Deming, New Mexico. A flagstop, it consists of a shelter on a concrete pad. An old wood depot, built in 1881, is situated between the Union Pacific and BNSF railroads, but it no longer is used by passengers.
In March 1881, the second transcontinental railroad, uniting the Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe Railway from the east with the Southern Pacific Railway from the west, was completed at Deming. To mark the occasion, a silver spike was driven to connect the rails. Deming subsequently received a large two story "union depot" that in 1930 was remodeled into a one story structure.
