Moosonee Railway Station is a railway station in Moosonee, Ontario, Canada. It is the northern terminus of the Ontario Northland's Polar Bear Express.

The station was built in the 1960s and renovated with new sidings in 2009. The first station in Moosenee was built in 1932 by the then Temiskaming and Northern Ontario Railway.

It consists of a single storey station building, sheds, and a small train yard. Box cars are stored at the terminus until trains run south for the return trip to North Bay or Toronto.

Moosonee is the base for cargo shipping to settlements not already served by the railroad.[citation needed]
