Manassas is a train station in Manassas, Virginia. It was originally built by the Southern Railway in 1914 and today serves as the penultimate station along the Virginia Railway Express Manassas Line, as well as a stop on three Amtrak trains: the Cardinal, the Crescent, and the Northeast Regional. It is located at 9431 West Street.
The city bought the depot from Norfolk Southern Railway in the 1990s and renovated it under the direction of The Manassas Museum System. Workers restored the original 1914 paint colors, repointed brick, laid new plaster, overhauled mechanical systems and installed reproductions of original doors and light fixtures. A tile roof similar to the original was also installed. The $575,000 project was completed in 1997. Today the depot has a waiting room and also houses a tourist information center and the James & Marion Payne Memorial Railroad Exhibition Gallery.
