The Central Pacific Railroad as built through Modesto in 1870, and was taken over by the Southern Pacific in 1884. In 1915, the Southern Pacific Railroad built a new Mission Revival station. It was used until 1971, when Amtrak took over intercity passenger service. When Amtak restored service to Modesto with the San Joaquin in 1974, the former Santa Fe station in Riverbank was used instead. (It was replaced with the modern Modesto station in 1999).
