Brockway station is a historic railway station located at Brockway, Jefferson County, Pennsylvania. It was built in 1913 by the Buffalo, Rochester and Pittsburgh Railroad, and is a one-story, rectangular brick building with Colonial Revival-style details. It sits on a poured cement foundation and has a hipped roof covered in red ceramic tile.

The Baltimore and Ohio Railroad operated both daytime and nighttime trains through the station on the BR&P route between Lackawanna Terminal in Buffalo and Baltimore and Ohio Station in Pittsburgh. Additionally, the company operated a local Buffalo to DuBois, Pennsylvania train, making stops at the station.[2] B&O passenger service to Brockway continued up to 1955, the final year of service on the BR&P line.[3] It is the only surviving passenger station in Jefferson County.[4]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2003 as the Brockwayville Passenger Depot, Buffalo, Rochester and Pittsburgh Railroad.[1]
