The Uxbridge Train Station, built in 1904, serves as a reminder of the days when Uxbridge was a bustling railway town, with a number of trains stopping here every day. Items shipped included livestock, grain, lumber, tools, coal, lime, cement and goods for local stores and businesses. Parcels and mail were on regular service and there were always passengers coming and going. In 1874, before the present station was built, the headquarters for Grand Trunk was located in Uxbridge. A roundhouse and engine repair shops were here as well as a factory for constructing coaches, boxcars and flat cars. In May of 1997 the station was returned to its former use as a waiting area and ticket office, now for the York-Durham Heritage Railway.
