Icicle Station & Amtrak's Empire Builder

Amtrak's Empire Builder

The photo was taken in Spring 2010 to give you an idea of what to expect when you arrive at Icicle Station.

There is no station building or phones. There is an information board, benches, a loading platform and a well-lit parking lot.

We would suggest you arrange for transportation to and from the station in advance. It is a walk-able distance of approx 2 miles however that would not be an easy walk with luggage or in the winter time.

Amtrak's Empire Builders Line began service in Leavenworth, WA on September 25, 2009 with it's inaugural run. Leavenworth, WA, your Bavarian Getaway is pleased to announce that we are once again a destination stop for the Empire Builder's route between Chicago, IL and Seattle, WA!

The addition of a Leavenworth station is the first in many years and more than 8 years of effort and partnership building have been diligently tended to by the City of Leavenworth, Amtrak, BNSF and funding agencies.

All aboard  experience the beauty of fall train travel through the Cascade Mountains!
