The Finn Valley Railway operated an Irish Gauge route to Stranorlar from Strabane (GNI) railway station from 7 September 1863. When this route was converted to 3 ft (914 mm) on 16 July 1894 the Donegal Railway Company built Strabane (CDR) railway station adjacent to the existing Great Northern Railway (Ireland) railway station. The two stations were connected by a footbridge.

The station was also later the terminus for the Strabane and Letterkenny Railway which operated from 1909. The station closed on 1 January 1960.[1]

The site is now occupied by an Asda supermarket car park.
