The Malvern (Amtrak station) is located at 200 E. First Street in Malvern, Arkansas, in the former Missouri Pacific Railroad station. This 24-foot by 82-foot red brick depot was originally constructed in 1916. Malvern is served by one daily passenger train in each direction, Amtrak's Texas Eagle. Malvern Amtrak station is unstaffed, and trains stop at Malvern on a flag stop basis. Advance reservations are strongly recommended.
From 1876-1901, Malvern was the only junction point for rail passengers desiring to travel to Hot Springs National Park. Passengers arriving on the St. Louis, Iron Mountain and Southern, a predecessor of Missouri Pacific Railroad, would transfer at Malvern to the trains of the Hot Springs Railroad. The former roundhouse of the Hot Springs Railroad is located across the track from the Malvern Amtrak station.
Malvern is the closest Amtrak station for Hot Springs National Park, but it is now necessary to travel by automobile over the 20 miles between the two points.
