Stanwood is a railroad station in Stanwood, Washington, USA that opened on November 21, 2009, with service on Amtrak's Cascades.[2] Construction was originally slated to begin in January 2009, with the stop expected to open in the following June, but by November 2008 was expected to begin in March 2009 with the opening in September.[3][4] The discovery of lead contamination on the project site further pushed back the opening of the station to mid-November 2009.[5] The projected cost varies between $4.2 million and $5 million. Amtrak's Amtrak Cascades makes four daily stops at the station.[4][6] Island Transit provides connecting bus service to locations on Camano Island.

Stanwood last saw train service in 1971 from the Burlington Northern Railroad.[7]
