Norfolk station is a train station in Norfolk, Virginia.[2] It is the terminus of a branch of Amtrak's Northeast Regional service which begins in Boston. Service began on December 12, 2012.[3] This station returned intercity passenger rail service to Norfolk proper for the first time since 1977 when the Mountaineer ended.

The $3.75 million brick and glass depot, financed by the city, opened on December 2, 2013. It was designed by architects and engineers with the Michael Baker Corporation and includes a three story tower. Prior to the depot's completion, passengers only used the concrete platform. [4]

The station is adjacent to the Harbor Park baseball stadium along the Elizabeth River on the eastern edge of downtown. The Tide light rail system has an adjacent station at Harbor Park, allowing for connections from Amtrak to the light rail service.
