Canadian Pacific's Orangeville Station, built in 1907 and still in pristine condition, is shown next to the bunkhouse at Orangeville Yard in April 1971. It was closed and moved off-site in the 1980's to serve as a restaurant along Broadway, leaving the bunkhouse for railway use here under CP and later the Orangeville Brampton Railway.

Unfortunately the bunkhouse burned down in a fire in March 2006, but OBRY has since built its own scaled down station on site for use by the Credit Valley Explorer tourist train based out of Orangeville. GO Transit also presently uses the parking lot here for their commuter "Park And Ride" lot for bus services.
