The Victoria railway station was in downtown Victoria, British Columbia, on the east end of the Johnson Street Bridge. The station was the southern terminus for VIA Rail's Victoria–Courtenay train dayliner service, which has been indefinitely suspended since 2011. As part of the Johnson Street Bridge replacement project, the rail link across the Inner Harbour was removed and the station dismantled. If rail service on the line was to resume, its southern terminus would now be on the far (western) side of the Johnson Street Bridge.
