Hudson is a train station in Hudson, New York. Originally built in 1874 by the New York Central Railroad, it is the oldest continuously operated station in the state. Besides the Water Level Route, Hudson was also the terminus of the former Boston and Albany Railroad Hudson Branch,[2] as well as another branch leading to Nieverville on the B&A Main Line.

Today, Hudson serves a total of four different Amtrak trains, all of which have a southern terminus at Pennsylvania Station in New York City. They consist of the Adirondack, from Montreal, Quebec, Canada, the Empire Service from Niagara Falls, New York, the Ethan Allen Express from Rutland, VT, the Maple Leaf from Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Southbound Lake Shore Limited trains from Chicago served Hudson until April 4, 2009.
