Hinton is an Amtrak station in Hinton, West Virginia, served by the Cardinal. The station is a former Chesapeake and Ohio Railway depot, and is located in the Hinton Historic District. Constructed in 1905, the brick building includes wood canopies supported by heavy brackets featuring a wood-fan pattern trim.
A December, 2007, fire damaged the building, but it reopened a short time later following repairs. The depot is currently undergoing a $1.5 million series of phased repairs and renovations. Work in the early phases included installation of a new slate roof, re-pointing of the brickwork and repairs to the windows and decorative woodwork. A new concrete platform with tactile edging was also installed.
Due to a bend in the adjacent New River, eastbound trains actually head southwest when passing the station (and vice versa).
