Edmonds is a passenger train station in Edmonds, Washington, servicing Amtrak's Empire Builder and Cascades trains, as well as Sound Transit's Commuter Rail North Line. The station is adjacent to the Edmonds-Kingston Ferry docks.

The depot, opened in 1956, was built by the Great Northern Railroad (GN) to replace an earlier structure. It is noted for its Modernist design, which emphasizes crisp, clean lines and an uncluttered interior. The exterior walls include Roman bricks laid in a stack bond, while large floor-to-ceiling windows eliminate the boundaries between interior and exterior areas. The station, platform, and parking are owned by BNSF Railway.[2]

Currently, there are four southbound Sounder departures during morning rush hour, with four return trips in the afternoon.[3] Sound Transit formerly planned to relocate Edmonds station as part of the larger Edmonds Crossing Multi-modal project being led by the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT). That plan was shelved in favor of renovating the station in place, a project expected to cost $12.9 million and be completed in early 2011.[4][5] The Swamp Creek & Western Railroad Association (a model railroaders' group) operates from the Edmonds Amtrak Station.[6]
