A renovated Sacramento, California, Amtrak station has opened. One goal of the $34 million dollar project was to create within the former Southern Pacific station a celebration of Sacramento’’ past and its future.
Some of the station has been devoted to commercial use, including a digital video lab created by the McClatchy Newspapers, publisher of the Sacramento Bee.
Amtrak’s California Zephyr, Coast Starlight, Capitol Corridor and San Joaquin trains use the station, which is connected to the Sacramento’s light rail system.
Amtrak said that in 2015 Sacramento was its seventh busiest station in the country.
