Thurmond is an Amtrak station in Thurmond, West Virginia, served by the "Cardinal". The station is located on CSX's New River Line.

It is of Amtrak's least-busiest stations (it was the second least-busiest for fiscal year 2006, after Greenfield Village, Michigan, which was less traveled because it had been discontinued from the Amtrak regular schedule in April 2006 (being open only to groups after that point).

The two-story wooden structure, built in 1905, also houses a railroad museum and a visitor center for the New River Gorge National River. The building was renovated in 1995.

A couple miles up the river is the New River Gorge Bridge.
