Niagara Falls station in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada is served by the Maple Leaf train between Toronto and New York City. On weekends and holidays in the summer it is also served by GO Transit excursion trains operating by way of the Lakeshore West line between Toronto and Niagara Falls.
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 Victorian Gothic Revival style station was built as the terminus for Great Western Railway (1879–1882) and Grand Trunk Railway (1882–1923). The station was renovated in 1951 and 1967 (east wing with restaurant was partially demolished) and again in the 1980s or 1990s. It was later acquired by CN Rail (1923-1970s) and now used by Via Rail (1970s-) and GO Transit.
There is no pre-clearance facilities here or on the American side. For passengers coming from the US, Canada Customs officers process passengers on the train. For trains to the US, US Customs handle passengers upon entry into the US at Niagara Falls, New York.
