Allanwater Bridge railway station is located in the Allan Water area of the Canadian province of Ontario, just west of where the railway line crosses the river Allan Water over a truss bridge. This station is currently[when?] in use by Via Rail. Transcontinental Canadian trains stop here under Via Rail's Special Stop Request program.

There is no permanent settlement at Allan Water; however, the station serves a number of recreational properties and wilderness lodges, and as an access point to Wabakimi Provincial Park. The area was also formerly home to a trading post operated by the Hudson's Bay Company with a small Anglican church dedicated to St. Barnabas.
