Bristol Train Station, also known as Bristol Union Railway Station, is a historic railroad station in Bristol, Virginia, USA.

The station was built in 1902 by the Norfolk and Western Railway. It is a one- to two-story brick building consisting of a tower section; a long seven-bay, one-story midsection; and a six-bay, two-story east end. The tower has a hipped roof with deep overhanging eaves supported by long sawn brackets. Stylistically, the station fits into the pattern of early 20th-century American eclecticism, combining Romanesque with various European vernacular modes. Associated with the station is a brick freight house constructed in 1883 and expanded in 1891.[3] It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.[1]
