What movie is about a man who travels back in time on a train and meets a woman who owns a...?

...newspaper

I believe that he was a writer in his "current day" life. He did not know that he was going to travel back in time the first time he goes. He travels a total of three or four times and the last time the conductor tells him that it is his "last trip when he boards and that if he goes, he must stay there". He meets a lady who owns a newspaper and falls in love with her. He decides to leave his "current day" life and wife and go back in time to stay with the woman from the past.

It may be a made-for-TV movie. At the time I thought it might be a Hallmark movie but I cannot find information about it anywhere.

    Sounds like you're describing "For All Time", a made-for-TV-movie from 2000. And the movie was very loosely based on an old Twilight Zone episode called "A Stop at Willoughby". The movie debuted on CBS on October 18, 2000. The Twilight Zone episode debuted May 6, 1960.

    The plot is that in the present day Charles Lattimer (played by Mark Harmon) is reaching middle age and is in a failing marriage to Kristen (Catherine Hicks). Charles finds an antique watch that allows him move through time while he is riding the train. He can get off the train in different times and winds up meeting a woman in 1896 named Laura Brown (Mary McDonnell). Charles moves back and forth between past and present but is ultimately caught in a situation where the timepiece is broken and the time portal is closing and thus he must make a decision where to stay.

    In the Twilight Zone episode a man takes the train back and forth between the stressful demands of his advertising job and the stress of his home life in the suburbs. He begins to get off the train in the wonderful town of Willoughby in the late 1800s where he is free from these worries. One day at work he snaps and rushes to get to Willoughby. But it turns out that Willoughby was entirely in his dreams and that on this last trip he really jumped from the train to his death. His body is picked up by Willoughby and Sons Funeral Home.
