Merlynston railway station is located on the Upfield line in Victoria, Australia. It serves the northern Melbourne suburb of Coburg North opening on 8 October 1889 as North Coburg. It closed on 13 July 1903, reopening on 1 October 1914 as Merlynston.
A level crossing formerly located at Shorts Road, south of the station, was closed in the late 1990s, and a dead-end street was created on either side of the railway line. Until the track was duplicated to Gowrie in 1998, the line north of the station had only a single track, apart from the island platform at Gowrie, which had two platforms. However one platform was a dead-end one, meaning trains couldn't cross at Gowrie, and had to cross at Merlynston. Boom barriers were provided at the Boundary Road level crossing in 1984.
