History

Owensmouth station, later Canoga Park, c. 1915
Owensmouth station, later Canoga Park, c. 1915

Southern Pacific built their Canoga Park station along the Burbank branch in 1912. The station building was on the north side of Sherman Way.[4] The same year, the Pacific Electric Owensmouth Line was completed to Owensmouth,[5]: 40  crossing the tracks at Sherman Way.[6] Southern Pacific ceased passenger service on the line in 1920,[7] and Pacific Electric stopped running cars here after 1938.[5]: 42  The old station building was designated a Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument in May 1990, three years before the structure was destroyed in a fire.

The Orange Line was constructed over the former Burbank branch, with bus rapid transit service starting at the newly built station on June 30, 2012.

Sherman Way is named after General Moses Sherman, due to his land development and rail lines he built in the valley.[8]
