Hidden Gem in the Michigan Countryside
Jul 2020
This station is a great place to watch trains, given the shelter, picnic tables, and of course, the 30-40 trains a day. The inside of the station is beautiful, and contains a museum, gift shop, waiting room for amtrak, and a model railroad club!

Wasnt sure what to expect but what a great place to learn. Displays are very informative easy to read and great photos and objects. The gentleman behind the counter told us alot, which was neat. We got to see a train come in and back into the yard from the second floor. Enjoy!!

Difficult to get to but so worth it!

I read about this place in a Michigan tourist type book. We were on a train themed vacation and I wanted to include this station. Very beautiful place full of history. It's still an Amtrak station with trains daily. Watch for open hours so you can see additional displays upstairs. A working player piano and beautiful marble walls. The history here is phenominal. Up to 3000 people daily through here when rail was popular.

The departure point of the last scheduled steam passenger train

This large depot is worth a visit. It houses a model railroad, a lot of historical photos, and a small museum. It is right on a diamond with a reasonable number of freight trains passing by.

A pice of History
May 2019 • Family
One of the few actively used turn of the century stations in Michigan. The location houses a very small museum (exhibit) on the states railroading history. The station is a fun place to take small chrildren intrested in railroading (trains frequently go by). The building is usually available to host events at additional cost. There is also a small gift shop with unique items. Definitely a worthwhile stop if you have some extra time.

Had fun at the Depot. Always a pretty place to hang out and love the atmosphere. Have used it also, several times, to take the train to Chicago. Easy & never very crowded. Will use it in the future too.

History and Railroad Museum

The museum was small but quite nice. We lucked out and were able to see the club's model set up. Would have liked to be able to see the inside of the caboose.

"Worth the Visit"
Jun 2018 • Couples
The visit to the museum is worth it if you like railroading. I grew up in Durand and my family owned a business and brings up memories seeing the photos and different items displayed. It is well worth the stop and time to go back in time and remember steam engines, railway stations, etc.
