New Station to Open in Hermann, Mo.

A ribbon cutting ceremony on Sept. 12 will mark the opening of a new Amtrak station in Hermann, Mo., which is served by four daily Missouri River Runner  trains.

Attending the ceremony will be officials from the city, state of Missouri, Amtrak and Union Pacific.

The ceremony will begin at 10 a.m. Westbound Amtrak train No. 311 will be held briefly for photos. It is scheduled to arrive at 10:49 a.m. “All of the citizens of Hermann are thankful for our Amtrak station,” said Hermann Mayor Tom Shabel.

“This project took the efforts and cooperation of many citizens, MoDOT, Union Pacific Railroad, and city officials. The results were worth the effort.”

“Hermann has waited a long time for this facility to come to fruition,” City Administrator Mark Wallace says. “We are very proud and excited to have a new Amtrak station to serve our visitors.”

Plans for the station project were first approved in 2006.
