Rosemont Station is an above-ground commuter rail station located in the western suburbs of Philadelphia at Airdale Road and Montrose Avenues in Rosemont, Pennsylvania.[3] It is served by most Paoli/Thorndale Line trains.

Rosemont Station was originally built by the Pennsylvania Railroad between 1863 and 1871 (appears on 1871 atlas). As a modern SEPTA station, the building is also occupied by a real estate broker's office and underwent renovations for this use in 1983. The ticket office at this station is open weekdays 6:00 AM to 10:55 AM excluding holidays. There are 112 parking spaces at the station. This station is 10.9 track miles from Philadelphia's Suburban Station. In 2011, the average total weekday boardings at this station was 360, and the average total weekday alightings was 389.[2]
