Pascoe Vale railway station is located on the Craigieburn line in Victoria, Australia. It serves the northern Melbourne suburb of Pascoe Vale opening on 10 November 1885.[1]

The railway past the site of Pascoe Vale station was opened in 1872 as part of the North East railway to Wodonga.[2]

The original station building on Platform 1 was provided in 1886, but has since been replaced. A signal box was opened to control interlocked gates at the Gaffney Street level crossing, until boom barriers replaced them in 1965.
