The Hamlet Amtrak Station, located in Hamlet, North Carolina, is served by the Silver Star passenger train. It is located at East Main Street and North Bridges Street, and is located in the heart of historic downtown Hamlet.

Hamlet Station was originally built in 1900 by the Seaboard Air Line Railroad as both a passenger station and a division headquarters. It was originally called the Seaboard Air Line Passenger Depot and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on November 19, 1971.[2] Between 2001 and 2004 the entire Queen Anne-style station house was moved across a set of tracks for safety, and converted into a museum by the North Carolina Department of Transportation.[3]
