Destination Victoria Station is a 1975 album by country music singer Johnny Cash. It was offered as a CBS Special Product and could only be bought at Victoria Station restaurants. Cash re-recorded many of his old train songs for this album, including "Hey Porter", "Casey Jones", "Waitin' for a Train" and "Wreck of the Ol' 97", as well as recording two new songs, "John Henry", and "Destination Victoria Station". In addition to re-recording songs, Cash also re-recorded his voice on "Wabash Cannonball" and "Orange Blossom Special", both retaining their original backing music.
