This was the old CNR Union Station opened March 8, 1933 to replace the old 1884 ICR Union Station first used by CPR June 3, 1889. Mileage 87.0 CNR Sussex Subdivision. CPR reached this station using trackage rights of 0.17 miles from their Saint John Sub. (Mc.Adam Sub.) until 1970 when they moved to their own station within a new office building three miles to the west. CPR used that station from October 25, 1970 until October 28, 1979. CNR used this station until June 6, 1973 after which it was demolished and trains used a modern new CN station two miles to the east until October 1979 when VIA opened a new station near the old Union Station.
