Wallingford is a railway station along the SEPTA Media/Elwyn Line, the former Pennsylvania Railroad West Chester Line. In 2013, this station saw 284 boardings and 420 alightings on an average weekday. It is located at Kershaw Road and Possum Hollow Road (although SEPTA gives the address as "Kershaw Avenue"), Wallingford, Pennsylvania.
In 1855, when the rail line was extended (to Media) through Wallingford, passing and freight sidings were built at the location. The present station was built in 1890 (although some sources claim it was built in 1880) and designed by architect Frank Furness. For a time, this station also served as Wallingford's post office.
