History

The original site of Malton railway station was approximately 0.8 km (0.5 mi) west of the current GO Transit facility, where Scarboro Street crosses the tracks. The first station was a wood frame structure built in 1856 by the Grand Trunk Railway (GTR), which was superseded by a second frame building in 1912. Ownership of the station was transferred to Canadian National Railway in 1920 when they acquired the GTR and they demolished that station in 1973.

GO Transit constructed a completely new building and platforms, south of Derry Road and west of Airport Road, for the introduction of GO Train service in 1974.

The International Limited was operated jointly by Via Rail and Amtrak between Chicago and Toronto. The service, which had started in 1982, was discontinued in 2004.

Metrolinx, the parent of GO Transit, purchased the 25 km (15.5 mi) Weston Subdivision from Canadian National Railway in 2009, including this section of track. CN will continue to serve its freight customers in the area and VIA will operate trains on the line.

Recent station renovations included improvements such as new walkways and a tunnel for pedestrian access to new platforms which have canopies rather than shelters, and expansion of the parking lot. The previous basic brick building has also been replaced by a new structure which offers improved facilities. The addition of elevators has now made the station fully accessible.
