Essex Train Station by rocamiadesign

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…


This is the Essex Amtrak Station, that services Glacier National Park in Montana. Essex is the only flag stop (making stops only upon request) on the Empire Builder route, and was the ninth busiest stop in Montana in 2008. The Essex stop is used mostly by tourists coming to the Park. I think it dates back to the earliest days of the Park.

There is no station building. The platform is owned by the historic Izaac Walton Inn. (Information gathered from the wikipedia article here:

I took this on the way back from our trip to the Goatlick. Unfortunately, I was still using the cheapy camera at that time.

    Wow, what a capture!

  • Thank-you! We have so many old buildings in Montana and so little time to photograph them before they’re torn down for condominiums.

    This looks like a scene from a movie. Beautiful.

  • Thanks! It may have been in a movie. A lot of them have been filmed here. Glacier Park is a favorite with Hollywood.
