 Overview
 Description
CN Burlington West is the location of the former Freeman VIA/CN station. The station is no longer occupying this space, and has been relocated behind the fire department headquarters on Fairview St.

The area now serves as a storage yard for rail machinery and other stuff. You will notice massive piles of old rail ties as well as rail maintenance vehicles which are still in use.

Units operating in this area include the GO Lakeshore West passenger trains, VIA and Amtrak passenger trains, and CN freight. It is the junction of the CN Halton and Oakville subdivisions. CN Burlington West, along with Bayview Junction, is among the best locations in Burlington for railfanning.
