South Bend is a train station in South Bend, Indiana. It is served by Amtrak's Lake Shore Limited between Chicago, Boston and New York, and Capitol Limited between Chicago and Washington D.C..

The station was built in 1970 when the Union Station in South Bend was abandoned[2] and served as the terminus of the South Shore Line until November 1992, when a new terminal was built at South Bend Regional Airport. Railroads such as the New York Central Railroad and the Grand Trunk Western Railroad used South Bend Union Station, but Amtrak and the City of South Bend vouched for the use of the current station.[citation needed]
