Harrisburg station ticket agent, 2016.

Amtrak Ticket Agent Scott Miner started with the company in 1999. Since Amtrak's early days, station and onboard service employees have worn a variety of uniforms that have changed to keep up with fashion trends and company branding.

The Pennsylvania Railroad completed the red brick Queen Anne-style Harrisburg station in 1887. Now known as the Harrisburg Transportation Center, the complex includes two historic steel and timber train sheds employing Fink roof trusses. The facility is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is designated a National Engineering Landmark. Harrisburg is an important transition point between electric train operations to the east and diesel operations to the west.

The station is served by the daily Pennsylvanian (New York-Philadelphia-Pittsburgh) and Keystone Service (New York-Philadelphia-Harrisburg) trains. These services are financed primarily through funds made available by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation.
