Train Station KioskThe Selma train station was originally built in 1924 by the Atlantic Coast Line and Southern railroads.  Fast forward to today, it is a fairly active little spot and serves passengers riding Amtrak's daily Carolinian between New York City and Charlotte, and Amtrak's daily Palmetto that runs between New York City and Savannah.  The Selma train station also houses a great museum with exhibits on the history of the train station and the Town of Selma.

We are honored to say that JCI operates this historic facility, which is open 365 days a year. Our staff takes great pride in keeping the station tidy and clean and is particularly attentive in offering passengers great customer service with a warm welcome while assisting with operating the kiosks and boarding the train.
