Came by expecting a working train station, but there are no people selling tickets behind a counter. It's a beautiful building but right now there's nothing there except the facade. Disappointing.

The "Metrolink" isn't the most reliable service in LA Country, but it's great that it still exists. Claremont's historic train station is beautiful in and of itself--as a local, I highly recommend using it :).

I grew up in Glendale, CA and Pasadena, CA where the train stations were as beautiful as they were useful. This one so reminded me of those two. They do not build places like this anymore, so it is a walk through the heritage of...More

Claremont Heritage offers tours of historic Claremont that meet in front of the depot on the first Saturday of each month at 10:00. Until I took that tour, I didn't realize the significance and influence of the depot. Well worth the $5. It's a beautiful...More

Watched over the years as it went from a working train station to falling into disrepair to it's current glory. History tells of a time when it was the local citrus train stop with the now renovated packing plant a block away. A great representative...More
