I originally posted this information on my old website on March 26, 2009, and last updated it on December 18, 2009.
The Bingen Amtrak depot, officially called Bingen-White Salmon, is in a corner of this BNSF maintenance building. The Amtrak depot reportedly opened in 1992. I don't know if that is when this building was built, or just when the Amtrak depot moved in. There are no services or Amtrak staff at the depot; just a waiting room.
Historically, the depot in Bingen was called White Salmon, due to the other nearby town's prominence and better-known name. This did not sit well with the people of Bingen, and in 1930 the depot was renamed Bingen-White Salmon.
