The small town of Benson, Arizona is along the Southern Pacific lines about 60 miles east of Tucson. Amtrak trains stop here 6 times a week, 3 eastbound and 3 westbound.
Technically the official Amtrak station is a little metal shelter, but fortunately the town has built a replica of the original station, which is used as a visitor center.
The area on both sides of the visitor center serve as a small train park, complete with a caboose.
The wall that separates the tracks from the station and parking lot has a series of murals and emblems, mostly of railroad related items, but also some local history.
With more than 40 freight trains a day passing through town, it was inevitable one would provide a photo op.
The lady at the visitor center is enthusiastic and helpful, making a brief stop here worthwhile.
