Station History

The Columbus depot was built of rusticated concrete in 1906 by the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul Railroad--better known as the Milwaukee Road. In keeping with early 20th century social norms, it originally had separate waiting areas for men and women. Benches in the facility have been in use since the days of the former Milwaukee Road, now the Canadian Pacific Railway. To celebrate the depot's centennial, Canadian Pacific Railway refurbished the interior, installed new flooring, painted the restrooms and pressure washed the building.

Amtrak provides ticketing services at this station five days a week. Columbus is served by two daily trains.
