Duffields is a passenger rail station on the MARC Brunswick Line between Washington, D.C. and Martinsburg, WV,[1] in the community of Duffields.

Because it is located in West Virginia, the station is maintained by the West Virginia State Rail Authority, rather than by MARC itself.

In 2015, a study began to look into the feasibility of replacing the station with a new station in nearby Ranson, West Virginia.[2]
