Will this ever become an Amtrak Station and serve passengers once again?

Well, I suppose anything is possible - but if i were told to bet on it....
 
Edit - a very handsome facade. Is that Jacksonville, FL, and which railroad built it?

I am not a histornian, nor do I play one on TV.  But it was a "Union" station, and I believe that it was built by the Southern, FEC, and ACL.
 
Yes, Jacksonville, FL.

Satellite view on Google Maps looks like the track has been pulled up and what used to be the tracks and platforms turned into a parking lot, mostly. And I don't see them coming back. Terminal stations with tracks ending at bumping posts aren't really all that great unless the station really is a terminal, end point for a run.
 
Somehow, i doubt it will come back as a train station, but I've been wrong about things before and surely hope I am this time on this subject.

Thought I'd bring this one back to life a little bit.
