The Orlando Amtrak station lies south of Downtown Orlando, about a mile south of the old stations at Church Street and Central Boulevard. It was built in 1926 by M. A. Griffith and W. T. Hadlow for the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad in the Spanish Mission style, and used by the Seaboard Coast Line Railroad after the 1967 merger with the Seaboard Air Line Railroad. Before the new station was built, the ACL station was at Church Street; this is now the Church Street Station tourist attraction. The SAL had a separate station at Central Boulevard .
Orlando station serves the Silver Meteor and Silver Star lines. It was also the eastern terminus of the Sunset Limited between Orlando and Los Angeles. However, due to the effects of Hurricane Katrina, the Sunset Limited between New Orleans and Orlando has been suspended indefinitely since August 2005.
