Tempe is a former train station served by Amtrak's Sunset Limited and Texas Eagle trains. Amtrak service to this station was discontinued in June 1996.

History[edit]

The Southern Pacific Railroad built the depot in 1924. The city purchased the building and in 1987 renovated it; the building now houses Macayo's Depot Cantina, a renowned Mexican restaurant. The Sunset Limited and Texas Eagle served this location from the 1987 renovation until 3 June 1996. Valley Metro Rail trains serve a new station one block east of the depot.
