Albion Station is an Amtrak station in Albion, Michigan. It is served by the Wolverine. Baggage cannot be checked at this location; however, up to two suitcases in addition to any "personal items" such as briefcases, purses, laptop bags, and infant equipment are allowed on board as carry-ons .

The current Albion Station house was built in 1882 by the Michigan Central Railroad, which originally ran through town in 1844. The station also had a freight house. Ten years earlier Albion had competition when the Lake Shore and Michigan Southern Railway arrived and added its own station, which operated until the 1920s.

Albion Station was abandoned in 1971, when Amtrak consolidated all cross-country passenger rail service within the United States. However it was restored to its original condition by local community groups in the mid-1980s and currently serves as both a bus and train station. The freight house was also restored and converted into a local sports bar known as Davan's.

Of the 22 Michigan stations served by Amtrak, Albion featured the lowest passenger volume in FY2010, boarding or detraining an average of approximately 4 passengers daily.[2]
