Petersburg is an Amtrak railroad station located at 3516 South Street in Ettrick, Virginia; just outside the city of Petersburg. The station was built in 1955 by the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad (ACL) and is located next to a former station.

Both station houses are near Virginia State University and Rogers Stadium. Both station buildings share the same platform.
