Winter Haven is a train station in Winter Haven, Florida, served by Amtrak, the national railroad passenger system of the United States. It was originally built in 1925 by the Seaboard Air Line Railway, and was rebuilt in 1947. It included a freight depot which was located on the south side of the station until 1982, and was torn down after Seaboard Coast Line Railroad merged with Louisville and Nashville Railroad.[2] Abandoned tracks cross the platform on the south side of the station.

The station provides service 4 times daily on the north- and southbound Silver Star and Silver Meteor lines.[3]
