Long Description:
Barstow Station stands alongside Route 66 to the South & the Santa Fe Railroad to the North. The Rail line has massive 1 mile long trains being pushed & pulled by up to six engines, that pass every few minutes. The station has been standing next to the busy railroad since 1975.

Although it carries the name Barstow Station, it was never a station, but was used as a watering service area, and marshalling sidings.

The Water tower was used for the railroad from 1949.

Other occupants of Barstow are Subway, Krispy Cream, Starbucks, and many others.
