Hornepayne railway station is located in the township of Hornepayne, Ontario, Canada. This station is served by Via Rail's transcontinental train The Canadian.

The station was established in 1913 by the Canadian Northern Ontario Railway as a divisional point and headquarters for the Superior Division, under the name Fitzbach railway station; its name was changed to Hornepayne around 1920.[1] Until the arrival of the highway in the 1980s, the town was dependent on the railway for transportation of supplies into the community.[1]
