Passenger service by the Oregon Electric Railway was discontinued in 1933, and the station was used as an office and for storage.
In 1961, the station became a branch of the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI), the Southwest Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (SWOMSI). After breaking with OMSI in 1978, the Willamette Science and Technology Center (WISTEC) sold the station and gave the proceeds to Lane County to build a children's museum in Alton Baker Park. SWOMSI's displays included train cars adjacent to the building. Those train cars are now part of the current restaurant's dining facilities.
