    The former Canadian National Railways (CNR) station at 45 Thames Street South in Ingersoll, Ontario, was built in 1889 for the Grand Trunk Railway (GTR), to designs by Joseph Hobson, the chief engineer of the Great Western division of the GTR.

    The modest size of the station reflects the era of troubled finances experienced by the overextended GTR, as it struggled to compete with the Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR). Although small, the station demonstrates the maturity of the designs coming out of the GTR chief engineer's office by the end of the 1880s. The location of this station at its present site was responsible for the expansion of the town of Ingersoll north of the Thames River, and this formative role is still visible in the site and setting of the structure.

    Now the property of VIA Rail, the station has been boarded up, in favour of a relatively new passenger shelter a few meters down the track. The town is considering options for the future use of the building.
