Plattsburgh is an Amtrak intercity train station in Plattsburgh, New York. Two trains, one in each direction, serve Plattsburgh daily, taking passengers north towards Montreal and south towards New York City on the Adirondack line.

The Plattsburgh station was opened in 1886, previously used as a Delaware and Hudson Railway Depot,[4] and was designed by Albany architects Fuller & Wheeler,[5] in the French Provincial style. It has been listed under the National Register of Historic Places since November 12, 1982.[6] Currently Amtrak only uses a small office downstairs at track level while the above space holds law offices, a media production business, and financial investment offices.
