Cochrane station is located in the town of Cochrane in Ontario.

It is the northernmost station stop for the discontinued Northlander trains and the southernmost stop for Polar Bear Express trains of the Ontario Northland Railway.

On September 28 2012, the Ontario Northland Railway operated the last Northlander train between Cochrane and Toronto, and replaced the route with a bus service.[1]

The Ontario government has stated, however, that it intends to preserve the Polar Bear Express train service between Cochrane and Moosonee as an "essential service".[2]

Next to the station is Cochrane Yard, a small train yard used to store trains for ONR.
