Rio Grande Station is a historic passenger station located in Lower Township, Cape May County, New Jersey, United States. The station was built in 1894 by the West Jersey Railroad in nearby Rio Grande, New Jersey. Subsequently the station served passengers on the Pennsylvania-Reading Seashore Lines.
The Rio Grande Station was donated to Cold Spring Village, a history museum in Lower Township, and it was moved to the museum site in 1975. It now operates as a seasonal heritage railroad station for the Cape May Seashore Lines. The station was added to the National Register of Historic Places on February 13, 2007. In the summer of 2013, the Cape May Seashore Lines operated Gas-powered speeder cars from Cold Spring Station to approximately one mile south on the line for the public. Since scrap vandals ravaged tracks from Woodbine to Dennisville in the summer of 2012, no locomotives or railcars have been able to operate to Cold Spring Station or points farther south since 2011.
