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 near Virginia State University and Rogers Stadium.

A replacement station has been proposed at a site nearby in Colonial Heights. [2]

In the 1970s Amtrak also served Union Station in Petersburg.
