Springville station is a historic train station located at Springville, Erie County, New York. It was built in 1910 by the Buffalo, Rochester and Pittsburgh Railway, and is a 1 1/2-story, rectangular brick building with a hipped roof. It consists of a central two-story tower section flanked by wings.[2]

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 through the station.[3] The B&O last had passenger trains using the station in 1955 in daytime runs between Pittsburgh and Buffalo.[4]

The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1991 as the Buffalo, Rochester and Pittsburgh Railroad Station.[1]
