The Kingman Amtrak station is located in the historic Kingman Railroad Depot at 400 E. Andy Devine Ave in Kingman, Arizona. Amtrak's Southwest Chief trains stop at the Kingman Station once daily in each direction. Kingman is also the transfer point for dedicated, guaranteed Amtrak Thruway Motorcoach service to/from Laughlin, Nevada and Las Vegas, Nevada.

Of the eight Arizona stations served by Amtrak, Kingman was the third busiest in FY10, boarding or detraining an average of 28 passengers daily.[2]

History[edit]

The Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway (ATSF)built the depot in 1907. The station's elevation is 3,335 feet (1,017 m) above sea level. The station has been a contributing property to the Kingman Commercial Historic District, which has been on the National Register of Historic Places since 1986. Like many depots constructed by the ATSF, the building exhibits characteristics of the Spanish Colonial Revival style of architecture, particularly in the roofline's curvilinear gables.[3] In early 2011, the city of Kingman finished a multi-year restoration of the depot. The work was funded in part through a $471,500 federal Transportation Enhancements grant and approximately $150,000 in federal Community Development Block Grants.[4] Following the rehabilitation, the depot houses a passenger waiting room and a railroad museum.[5]
