Fullerton Station is a passenger rail and bus station located in Fullerton, California. It is served by Amtrak's "Pacific Surfliner" and "Southwest Chief" trains, and Metrolink's 91 Line and Orange County Line trains. It also serves as a major bus depot for the Orange County Transportation Authority, and is altogether one of the major transportation hubs of Orange County.

This station is notable because it actually has two historic depots on site: one built in 1923 by the Union Pacific Railroad and the other built in 1930 by the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway. Both depots are on the National Register of Historic Places. The Santa Fe depot is used as an Amtrak ticket office, passenger waiting area and cafe while the Union Pacific building is occupied by an Old Spaghetti Factory restaurant.

In recent years, the Fullerton Railway Plaza Association has begun fundraising and lobbying efforts for the creation of an interactive railroad attraction or museum at the site [Fullerton Railway Plaza Association http://www.scrmf.org/] , while continuing preservation efforts. Since 1998, the Amtrak station and the FRPA have hosted the annual "Fullerton Railroad Days" at the Santa Fe depot. [http://www.scrmf.org/rrdays/]
