The Cleburne Intermodal Transportation Depot is an Amtrak train station in Cleburne, Texas, United States.

History[edit]

TBV and Santa Fe depots in 1910

For many years, Cleburne was the site of a major locomotive backshop of the Santa Fe Railroad, and many shop buildings can be seen on the east side of the track. The 1898 two-story brick depot was scaled down to one floor and ultimately demolished during the 1990s to make way for a road improvement project.[3]

Cleburne became the northern end of the Trinity and Brazos Valley Railway in 1904,[4] with the portion from Teague now abandoned.

Cleburne's current intermodal station, built in 1999, serves Amtrak trains and is the office for Cletran,[1] the local bus transit. In recent history, the station has become less prestigious and the surrounding buildings have become mostly abandoned.[5] The depot no longer has an Amtrak agent and tickets can be purchased from the conductor on board the train.[1]
