Original Passenger Depot located on the site of existing Lodi Station.  The town developed around the railroad reservation.

Railroad stations in Central Valley are studied.  Strong local interest in upgrading the Southern Pacifc Depot.  Needed to move Depot to its new site in order to accommodate an 800’ platform for Amtrak, and to avoid blocking Pine Street.  Structural study done to see if Depot could be moved.  It was determined that it could be done.
