Cut Bank, Montana is a station stop for the Amtrak Empire Builder in Cut Bank, Montana and an important regional railway freight yard for the BNSF Railway—which operates no less than three grain collection elevators in the yard collecting grains from the western great plains region. The station, platform, and parking are owned by Amtrak,[2][3] while the adjacent Railyard sidings, trackage, and signals are owned and operated by BNSF Railway. The station is just under a mile from the scenic Cut Bank Creek gorge called merely "Cut Bank" giving the county-seat, station, and yard each their eponymous names.

The city, in conjunction with Amtrak and current track owner BNSF Railway, recently repainted their historic train station into the traditional Great Northern Railway depot colors. The Great Northern was the original owner of the station and tracks.

Of the twelve Montana stations served by Amtrak, Cut Bank was the eleventh busiest in FY10, boarding or detraining an average of 9 passengers daily.[4]
