C. L. Dellums Amtrak Station, Oakland, California 1

C. L. Dellums Amtrak Station was designed by VBN Architects and is located at 245 Second Street, Oakland, California. The station, which is only the 2nd new railroad train station to be constructed in the past 100 years, opened in 1995 and serves more than 30 passenger trains each day.

The majority of the trains that stop at the station are on the Capitol Corridor route, between Sacramento and San Jose. It is also the origination or final destination for eight San Joaquin daily trains which run to Bakersfield. The station also serves the northbound and southbound Coast Starlight train route.

Named in honor of longtime Oakland resident C. L. Dellums, who organized the Pullman Car Porter's Union.
