Although the Durham Train Station is small, it serves almost 83,000 passengers every year. The station, which is in downtown Durham, North Carolina, has two passenger trains, the Piedmont and the Carolinian. Located in the Walker Warehouse of what used to be the Liggett and Myers Complex, the station opened here in 2009. Before that, the trains used an Amshack modular station across the street.
The building the station is in now was built in 1897 and is on the National Register of Historic Buildings. The decorative brickwork, like mousetoothing and corbeled pendants, attracts many historians and architecture enthusiasts as well as passengers. Much of the traffic at the train station are students from the nearby Duke University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
Since there is not much more than a few seating areas, baggage checking, ticket counters, and restrooms, you will have to head out to the City of Durham to entertain yourself while you wait for your train to arrive. Visit one of the malls, museums, or parks in town. If you like to hike, the American Tobacco Trail is almost 23 miles that meanders along the old railroad bed.
Fun Fact: The barcode was developed by George Laurer in Durham’s Research Triangle Park, and the first item to be scanned was a 10-pack of Juicy Fruit Gum. That gum is now on display at the Smithsonian.

This was my first time using this service and it worked seamlessly. I had no problems at all dropping my bag off at NYC Racquet Sports and it was just as easy picking it up. This location is a couple blocks from Penn Station, so it was perfect for exploring Manhattan for several hours before catching the train to Newark Airport for a late night flight. Will definitely use this service on future trips!
Really excellent service, right around the corner from A/C/E trains at Penn Station in New York. Popular and busy restaurant, too — but no one kept me waiting to drop off or pick up a bag.
This place is awesome, it’s near Macy’s and other souvenir shops, nearby food outlets too and near the Penn station in New York. This is the best place to leave your luggage for last minute shopping before you head to the airport via Penn station. Plus the Employees are very courteous and kind
