The Flagstaff (Amtrak station) is located at 1 East Route 66 in Flagstaff, Arizona. The Station, formerly the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway depot, doubles as a visitor center and is located in the midst of the shops, cafes, and boutiques of downtown Flagstaff. Northern Arizona University is located nearby, as are the Lowell Observatory (where Pluto was discovered), Sunset Crater, the Walnut Canyon National Monument, ski resorts, and other attractions.

In FY07, it was the busiest Amtrak station in Arizona, based on reported passenger traffic.

History

AT&SF built the depot in 1926. The station's elevation is 6,902 feet above sea level. Adjacent is the 1889 solid-red sandstone freight depot originally built by the Atlantic and Pacific Railroad.
