At 19427 N John Wayne Pkwy, the Maricopa Amtrak Station in Arizona is small and not in a walkable area. The Texas Eagle and Sunset Limited routes stop here with service to cities including Los Angeles, Dallas, Chicago and New Orleans. If Phoenix is your final destination, Maricopa is the closest station — rail service to the Phoenix Union Station was discontinued in 1996 due to lack of funds to repair tracks (source).

If you are traveling to the station, be sure to check out the 1948 observation rail car on site that was once used on the California Zephyr train. Learn more about the station below.
