SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - A historic Amtrak station outside of Santa Fe will no longer have a ticket window to sell tickets.

The Santa Fe New Mexican reports Amtrak announced last week the sales window at the century-old Mission Revival-style station in Lamy, New Mexico will close.

Amtrak says it's a casualty of changing ticket-purchasing habits as more passengers buy tickets online.

The station itself, which functions as the Santa Fe stop on the Southwest Chief route between Chicago and Los Angeles, will remain on the line.

Lamy is one of five stations on the line in New Mexico; the Southwest Chief also services Raton, Las Vegas, Albuquerque and Gallup.

The Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway built the Lamy station in 1909.
