Jacksonville station is a train station in Jacksonville, Florida, United States, serving Amtrak, the national railroad passenger system. It serves the Silver Meteor and Silver Star trains as well as the Thruway Motorcoach to Lakeland. The station lies next door to a freight facility with its own platform and is also just east of Norfolk Southern's Simpson Yard.


Amtrak's Clifford Lane facility has been in operation since 1974, when it replaced the downtown Union Station, now the Prime F. Osborn III Convention Center.[2]

Two other services once used this station, the Palmetto and Sunset Limited. In 2004 the Palmetto's route was shortened to end in Savannah, GA and in 2005 the Sunset Limited was shortened to end in New Orleans, LA as a result of Hurricane Katrina.
