Eddystone is a station along the SEPTA Wilmington/Newark Line and Amtrak Northeast Corridor. Amtrak does not stop here, only SEPTA serves this station. Eddystone is a borough in Delaware County.

The area of Eddystone is rather historic, home to the Baldwin Locomotive Works, which built 100,000+ steam, diesel, and electric locomotives until the mid-1950s. The station, located at Industrial Highway (PA 291) & Saville Avenue, includes a 12-space parking lot. A second platform exists along Seventh Street west of Saville Avenue.
