Browning station is a train station in Browning, Montana. It is a seasonal stop for Amtrak's Empire Builder, open from October to April. It serves Browning and the rest of the Blackfeet Indian Reservation, as well as the eastern side of Glacier National Park. It functions as an alternate for the East Glacier Park station at Glacier National Park, which closes during the winter.[2]

The station, platform, and parking are owned by BNSF Railway.[2][3] The old station building has been removed, leaving only a platform and parking area.
