Welcome to a site dedicated to railroad stations in the state of Minnesota. Your help as a railroad historian has been, and will continue to be, essential to the life of this site. As of Nov. 2015, there are over 430 current stations (still standing) and 1,500+ stations of the past listed in the database. There are around 800 photos of extant and non-extant stations here.

The stations listed in the database are organized by county (there are 87 in Minnesota). Click on "Station Database" in the menu to begin your exploration!
