Anniston is an Amtrak train station at 126 West 4th Street in Anniston, Alabama. It is served by the Crescent passenger train. The station was originally designed by Milo R. Hanker and built in 1925 for the Southern Railway, and was one of the last railroad-operated active passenger stations in the country, as the Southern Crescent (predecessor to the current Amtrak train) was still operated by the Southern well into the Amtrak era.
In 2008, the city completed a full rehabilitation of the classical revival depot, primarily using funds obtained through the Federal Highway Administration’s Transportation Enhancements (TE) program.
