The Waterloo train depot

Of the 11 Indiana stations served by Amtrak, Waterloo has been consistently the third-busiest after Indianapolis and Lafayette or South Bend, boarding or detraining an average of approximately 60 passengers daily or 25,000 per year. The station is 25 miles north of Fort Wayne, Indiana.

The Town of Waterloo recently moved the historic New York Central depot to a position closer to the existing platform and installed additional lighting, walkways, and a free parking lot. The station is now open daily 5:30 a.m.-7:30 a.m. (or until the two morning trains depart) and re-opens from 9:00 p.m.-1:30 a.m. (or until the two night trains depart).

The Town does not own the area by the boarding area and could not make improvements there.  However, passengers will enjoy the renovated facilities, refreshments, restrooms and historic memorabilia as they wait comfortably in Waterloo going forward. Waterloo Depot station attendants are on duty and can assist you with information.

Amtrak installed electronic signage at the station and boarding platform with real-time information about train arrival times.
