Markham GO Station is a railway station in the GO Transit[1] network located on Markham Main Street North in Markham, Ontario in Canada. It is a stop on the Stouffville line train service, which only has peak hour service, and all connecting bus services operate on the street and do not enter the station.

History[edit]

Toronto and Nipissing Station, c.1900

The station was built in 1871 by the Toronto and Nipissing Railway,[2] which was taken over by the Grand Trunk Railway, which ultimately became part of the Canadian National Railway in 1923. It has been designated as a heritage railway station[3] by the Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada. The city of Markham purchased the building as a Millennium project and are undertaking its restoration[4] in conjunction with the Markham Village Conservancy, which manages the station.[5] In addition to facilities for GO Transit, the building is used as community centre, with two rooms with a capacity of either 100 or 30 people, available for rental.[6]
