The Fort Edward station, also known as the Fort Edward–Glens Falls station, is a train station in Fort Edward, New York. It was originally built as a Delaware and Hudson Railroad depot in 1900, as a replacement for two earlier stations. The first was built in 1840 but was later converted into a store in 1880, the same year it was replaced with a second depot on the existing site.[3] The third and current station has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since December 13, 2000.[4] The station serves both Fort Edward and nearby Glens Falls.

The station is served by Amtrak's daily Adirondack and Ethan Allen Express. It also sees bus service to Lake George, New York, provided by the Greater Glens Falls Transit Systems. This service, however, is only available in the summer months and only Monday through Saturday. The station offers a waiting room with seating, as well as The Station Deli which has take-out sandwiches as well as table service. The Station Deli also includes a gift shop which changes seasonally.[5]

The station has one low-level side platform to the west of the track.
