Huntingdon Station is an Amtrak railway station located approximately 95 miles northwest of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania and 30 miles east of Altoona, Pennsylvania at 4th and Allegheny Streets in Huntingdon, Pennsylvania. The station is located at the south end of the borough, along one of the major streets into Huntingdon (4th Street), just north of the Juniata River.

Huntingdon Station is currently only served by Amtrak's "Pennsylvanian", which operates once per day in each direction. Until 2005, Huntingdon 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 Huntingdon's railway history that the town was served by just a single, daily passenger train.

The station is actually a shack-like, but structurally sound building. There is no ticket office at this station. Though most of the "Pennsylvanian" route between Harrisburg and Pittsburgh transverses through rural, sparsely populated areas, Huntingdon is the only stop between the two aforementioned cities that does not have bus service, either local or intercity, of any kind within one mile of the station.
