Havre station is a train station, re-fueling, and service stop for the Amtrak Empire Builder in Havre, Montana. The station, platform, and parking are owned by BNSF Railway, and the station was previously owned and operated by the Great Northern Railway[2][3]

On static display, next to the station, is Great Northern Railway steam locomotive #2584, a 4-8-4 S-2 "Northern" Class. Nearby is a sculpture representing "U.S. – Canada Friendship" and a statue of James J. Hill, the man for whom the Empire Builder is named and the developer of the Great Northern Railway.
