Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway Depot - Fullerton, California

The Fullerton Santa Fe Depot was built in 1930 by the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway. Fullerton has become the hub of rail activity for Orange County and is currently served by over 50 Amtrak and Metrolink passenger trains each day.

The Amtrak Pacific Surfliners stop at the station almost hourly and provide convenient rail transportation up and down the California coast from as far south as San Diego to as far north as San Luis Obispo.

The Fullerton Depot is also served daily by the Amtrak Southwest Chief which follows the route of the historic Santa Fe Trail east to Chicago.

For more information visit the Fullerton Heritage Website.

That is such a great old station. Any idea when they plan to open the Railroad Museum? We've heard talk of such.

Yes, this is a great old building, I'm glad they haven't torn it down and replaced it with something that has no personality or history!

They are in the process of remodeling pullman coaches and caboose'. It looks to me like this is going to be for the museum but I am not sure.
