Lewistown Station is an Amtrak railway station located about 60 miles northwest of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania at PA Route 103 and Helen Street in Lewistown, Pennsylvania. The station is actually located across the Juniata River from Lewistown proper, a little less than one mile south of the center of the borough. Lewistown Station is currently only served by Amtrak's "Pennsylvanian", which operates once per day in each direction. Until 2005, Lewistown was served by a second daily train, the "Three Rivers" (a replacement service for the legendary "Broadway Limited"), an extended version of the "Pennsylvanian" that terminated in Chicago. Upon its cancellation, the sole "Pennsylvanian" marked the first time in Lewistown's railway history that the town was served by just a single, daily passenger train.

A station building exists at the stop, which is open before and during train departure times. However, there is no ticket office at this station. The distance between Lewistown and the next station eastward, the "Harrisburg Transportation Center", is the longest distance between stations (61 miles) anywhere along the route between Pittsburgh and New York.
