The 1886 Duarte train station was the terminal station for the original trains for the Los Angeles and San Gabriel Valley Railroad. The Gold line uses the old right of way of the The Los Angeles and San Gabriel Valley Railroad who built the first train tracks and 1886 station in Duarte. The Los Angeles and San Gabriel Valley Railroad was founded in 1883, by James F. Crank with the goal of bringing a rail line to San Gabriel Valley from downtown Los Angeles. Los Angeles and San Gabriel Valley Railroad was sold on May 20, 1887 into the California Central Railway. The California Central Railway built a Duarte train depot in 1897. In 1889 the rail line and station was consolidated into Southern California Railway Company. On Jan. 17, 1906 Southern California Railway was sold to the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway and called the Pasadena Subdivision. Amtrak-Santa Fe ran the Southwest Chief and Desert Wind over this line in Duarte, but relocated the Desert Wind to the Fullerton Line in 1986. The Santa Fe line served the San Gabriel Valley until 1994, when the 1994 Northridge earthquake weakened the bridge in Arcadia and the track was closed till the Gold line was built.
