Elko station is a train station in Elko, Nevada. It is served by Amtrak's California Zephyr.[Note 1]

The westbound platform is accessed from Water Street via 11th Street and the eastbound platform is accessed from Sharp Access Road via 12th Street (Water Street cannot be accessed directly from 12th Street). The station is owned by the Union Pacific Railroad and contains two enclosed shelters on two platforms, one on each side of the pair of tracks for each direction of travel. There are no services provided at the station (e.g., ticketing, restrooms, lounge, etc.).[2]

History

Originally Elko was served by two train depots along two separate lines that ran through the down town area. As the two lines were operated in a directional running setup, westbound trains used the Southern Pacific Railroad (SP) depot at 684 Railroad Street and eastbound trains used the Western Pacific Railroad (WP) depot at the corner of 3rd street and Silver street. In the 1980s both railroad tracks were relocated south of the downtown area and the current shelters became the Amtrak depots in 1984.[5]

Notes

  1. ^ As of 15 July 2013, the westbound train (Route 5) is scheduled to stop at 3:03 am and the eastbound train (Route 6) is scheduled to stop at 9:31 pm.[4]
