La Crosse is an Amtrak intercity train station in La Crosse, Wisconsin, served by Amtrak's daily Empire Builder line. The train station was originally built in 1926 by the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul, and Pacific Railroad (AKA "Milwaukee Road"), but was also used by the Minneapolis, St. Paul and Sault Ste. Marie Railroad (Soo Line).[3] The station was renovated in 1997 and today is listed on the National Register of Historic Places in Wisconsin as the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul Railway Depot, as well as the Milwaukee Road Passenger Depot.

The station is one of only two staffed Amtrak stations in Wisconsin, the other being Milwaukee.
