The Galena Amtrak station is a proposed train station located in Galena, Illinois, and will serve a new Chicago-Rockford-Dubuque Amtrak route that is expected to begin operation in late 2014 or early 2015.[1] The existing depot is listed in the National Register of Historic Places, and the city of Galena proposes using the existing depot (which is currently in use as a tourist information center) as Galena's Amtrak station. However, the platforms would need to be rebuilt before the station will become an Amtrak stop again.[2] However, with the new proposal for Amtrak service to terminate in Rockford following the inability of the state of Illinois to reach a deal with the Canadian National Railway for use of their tracks, the Galena station project is on hold until a deal can be reached with the CN.[3]
