Railway Stations of Ontario


Welcome to a comprehensive listing of railway stations within the Province of Ontario. The following document provides the location of all known remaining heritage stations constructed prior to 1960 that can be traced within the Province, originating from both steam and interurban lines. Maintaining this data base is a constant process. If you are aware of any additional stations not listed or have information on a status change, please e-mail myself, Rob Hughes at ontariostations@bell.net Your help is really appreciated.
