Detroit is an Amtrak station located in the New Center area of Detroit, Michigan. It is served by the Wolverine. The station was built in 1994 as a replacement for the former Michigan Central Station, which closed in 1988. From the closure of Michigan in 1988 until the new stations opening in 1994, services used a platform close to the old station.[2]
