White River Junction is a passenger train station in White River Junction, Vermont, served by Amtrak's Vermonter. It is also used by the Green Mountain Railroad for passenger excursion trains to Thetford and the Montshire Museum of Science in Norwich, Vermont. Originally, it was built in 1937 as a union station[2] that served the Boston and Maine Railroad, Central Vermont Railway, and Rutland Railroad. On display adjacent to the station is a sheltered display of Boston and Maine Railroad #494, a historic steam locomotive. The station's historic building is a contributing property in the White River Junction Historic District, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.[3] Dartmouth College is five miles to the north in Hanover, New Hampshire.

In earlier decades more trains stopped in the station. The Boston & Maine's Ambassador Boston - Montreal train stopped there, as did the Connecticut Yankee in its years as an longer distance international train from New York City to Quebec City.
