Purcell is a train station in Purcell, Oklahoma, United States, served by Amtrak's Heartland Flyer train. This is the second station in this location to serve Amtrak. The original Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railroad depot was torn down in the 1990s; its last service was the Lone Star, discontinued in 1979. The current brick depot was completed in 2001 with a grant from the Great American Stations Foundation.[2]
