Warneford Station, originally known as Blackwater Station (after the Blackwater River), was located west of the community of Beardmore, Ontario at Milepost 25.6. Click here for its location.

It is not known for certain, but the name may have been changed to honour Reginald Warneford, a British aviator with the Royal Naval Air Service and a recipient of the Victoria Cross in 1915. The stations at Jellicoe and Hogarth were also renamed during World War I for well-known servicemen.

The siding here was removed before 1970s. Approximately half a mile west of the station at a sharp bend in the grade was 2500-foot through spur to a ballast pit.
