Winnemucca station is a train station in Winnemucca, Nevada. It is served by Amtrak's California Zephyr, which runs once daily between Chicago, Illinois, and Emeryville, California.[Note 1]

Winnemucca was originally a stop on the Southern Pacific Railway's Transcontinental Railroad, however after passenger service was acquired by Amtrak in 1971, the station became little more than a bus shelter along the platform. The former SP freight house was neglected and torn down sometime in the early 21st century. The previous bus shelter, which was installed in 1993, was replaced with a new ADA compliant station in early 2012 at a cost of 1.26 million dollars. The station is owned by the Union Pacific Railroad. There are no services provided at the station (e.g., ticketing, restrooms, lounge, etc.).[2]
