Pill railway station was a railway station near Bristol, England, on the Portishead Railway. It opened on 18 April 1867 and closed on 7 September 1964. A goods yard just north of the station opened in 1912 and closed in 1963.
Campaigners for the railway line to be reopened for passenger traffic have suggested the re-instatement of a passing loop here and the reopening of the station. However the latest proposals suggest reopening the station, and most of the line, without a passing loop.
