Benson is a train station in Benson, Arizona. It is served by Amtrak's Sunset Limited and Texas Eagle, which pass through Benson 3 days a week in each direction.[2] There are no facilities for Amtrak passengers other than a small metal shelter. The nearby Southern Pacific Railroad Depot replica building has been used as a tourist information center.[3]

The station is a flag stop, served only when passengers have tickets to and from the station.
