Topeka is a train station in Topeka, Kansas, United States, served by Amtrak's Southwest Chief train. The station was built in 1950 by the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway as a replacement for the former Topeka Harvey House, which itself was opened in 1878 as part of the original Santa Fe depot and remained open until 1940.[2] The existing station was remodeled by the BNSF Railway in 2006.[3]
