The Union Station in Raleigh, North Carolina was constructed in 1890 by the Raleigh and Gaston Railroad, a predecessor of the Seaboard Air Line, at the corner of Dawson and West Martin streets. It also served the Norfolk Southern Railway and the Southern Railway, with a total of four tracks. Being a stub-end station, Union Station was inconvenient to operate. Seaboard built a new run-through station for itself in 1942, as did Southern in 1950. By that time, Norfolk Southern had discontinued its passenger trains.

The head-house of Union Station survives as an office building. The former platform area was redeveloped as industrial property.
