The Maple Leaf is a joint Amtrak-Via Rail service: ticketing is shared, and trains consist of Amtrak equipment but are operated on the Toronto-Niagara Falls portion of the route by Via crews. The station was formerly served by additional Via trains operating as part of Corridor services, but these were discontinued in 2012.
The station is an accessible, unstaffed, but heated shelter beside the tracks replaced a small wooden shed. Parking is free.
The original Great Western Railway station, built in 1853, is used by Fork Road Pottery. It had also been used previously as a fruit depot and meat packing depot. The second GWR station burned down in 1900 and was replaced by a third in 1902. That historic railway station building had two towers and was destroyed by an electrical fire in 1994. That building was concurrently in use as a restaurant between 1979 and 1994. The current Via Rail shelter was built in the 1990s.
