Rail Passengers Will Return to Historic Creston Depot
CRESTON, Iowa- The Restored Creston Railroad Depot will soon be hosting rail travelers again. The City has signed a lease with Amtrak to use the depot as a place for passengers to arrive and depart. Amtrak trains pass through Creston twice a day, one eastbound, another westbound. “We started working with Amtrak about three years ago,” said City Administrator Mike Taylor. “They had come to the City and asked if we’d be interested in letting them come back and use the restored depot, as an Amtrak site for passengers, that are getting off and on the train in Creston.”
