The Credit Valley Railway arrived in Hillsburgh in 1879. The first timetable book used in Hillsburgh is dated Jan. 20, 1880 and the station master was W.A. Munroe. Originally 4 trains ran daily but by 1933 this was down to two. Passenger service ended in 1958 and by 1988 the trains no longer used this track. In the mid 1970(a)s the station was in disuse but the old animal loading ramps were still to be found behind the station. The original station along with grain elevators burned in the fall of 1932 and was replaced in 1933. I have read that the replacement station was moved to Terra Cotta Conservation Area and is being used as a storage shed. I will try to find this and post pictures if I can. The old railbed is now the Cataract Trail.
