Petersburg Union Station is an unused train station in Petersburg, Virginia. It was originally built in 1909–1910 for the Norfolk and Western Railway, replacing an earlier structure damaged by a flood. The station remained in use until the formation of Amtrak in 1971, when passenger service on the Norfolk and Western's tracks ended. It saw a brief revival in 1975–1977, when Amtrak operated the Mountaineer between Norfolk and Cincinnati, Ohio. The Hilltopper, which replaced the Mountaineer and ran until 1979, used a station located slightly to the west at Fleet Street instead.The Atlantic Coast Line Railroad also used Union Station for a time; the ACL's line curved off to the northeast while the Norfolk and Western's ran east–west. The Atlantic Coast Line used a new station from 1955 on.The Seaboard Air Line Railroad, the third railroad to serve Petersburg, had two stations (Market Street and Dunlop Street) near downtown. Union Station is located along the northeastern edge of the Petersburg Old Town Historic District.Plan to see Petersburg Station and other attractions that appeal to you using our Petersburg holiday maker tool.
