Lapeer is an Amtrak station in Lapeer, Michigan currently served by the Blue Water. The station was originally built in the early 1900s by the Grand Trunk Western Railroad, and renovated by Amtrak and the Michigan Department of Transportation in 1991 and completely restored in 2004. Another station in Lapeer formerly served the Michigan Central Railroad, but is now the office for an insurance company. The Amtrak station sits at a former junction of the GTW and MCRR lines, the latter of which is mostly removed, with the remaining piece now used by Lapeer Industrial Railroad.
Baggage cannot be checked at this location; however, up to two suitcases in addition to any "personal items" such as briefcases, purses, laptop bags, and infant equipment are allowed on board as carry-ons.
