Bound Brook is a New Jersey Transit railroad station on the Raritan Valley Line, in Bound Brook, New Jersey. The station building on the north side of the tracks is now a restaurant; the other station building on the south side is now privately owned. A pedestrian tunnel connects the south and north sides of the tracks.
The Norfolk and Southern Railroad's Lehigh Line, the railroad's main freight line into the New York City area, (built and formerly owned by the Lehigh Valley Railroad) is a few yards south of the south platform and is used by around 25 freight trains a day.
The station at 350 East Main Street was built in 1913 as a replacement station. This was a part of the Central Railroad of New Jersey Elevation Project from Elizabeth to Somerville (grade crossing removal). The station on the north side of the tracks replaced the original station (circa 1847-8) that was located on the south side of the tracks as built by the railroad then known as The Elizabethtown & Somerville Railroad.
Bound Brook station was listed on the New Jersey Register of Historic Places and the National Register of Historic Places as part of the Operating Passenger Railroad Stations Thematic Resource.
