The Fargo Amtrak station is a train station in Fargo, North Dakota, served by Amtrak, the national railroad passenger system. The largest city in North Dakota, Fargo features only the third-most boardings and detrainings annually in the state, behind Minot and Williston. This is chiefly due to the fact that Amtrak's daily Empire Builder, which makes stops in six other North Dakota cities, stops in Fargo during the middle of night on both its eastbound and westbound journeys. In FY07, an average of 61 passengers boarded or detrained at the station each day.

The platform, tracks, and station are all owned by BNSF Railway. The city is investigating the possibility of renovating the station within the next few years, a task which is dependent on funding availability.
