Notes
Grand Trunk railway was extended to Kitchener in 1856. A small station was built at Weber and Victoria Streets. A second station was built in 1897 by the Grand Trunk Railway. This 1897 GTR station was struck by lightning on June 22, 1908, and rebuilt the same year. In 1923 the GTR was taken over by the Canadian National Railway.

Berlin became Kitchener in 1916.
