The Slidell Amtrak Station in Slidell, Louisiana was built in 1913 for the use of the New Orleans and Northeastern and the New Orleans Great Northern Railroads. Slidell was first established in 1881 as a construction camp for the NO&NE.[3] The station is served by one daily train, The Crescent.

The Norfolk Southern Railway, successor to the NO&NE, donated the depot to the city in 1996. It was substantially renovated with a grant from the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development with funds received from the federal government under the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991. It currently houses an art gallery, the Slidell Cultural Center, and two restaurants.[4]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1996 as New Orleans and Northeastern—New Orleans and Great Northern Railroad Depot.[2]

Of the seven Louisiana stations served by Amtrak, Slidell was the third-busiest in FY2010, boarding or detraining an average of approximately 20 passengers daily.[1]
