Apalit railway station is a former railway station of the Northrail line. This line has been used for passenger and freight transportation by Philippine National Railways and its precursors in the past. The station was supposed to be rebuilt as a result of the Northrail project, a rebuilding of the line from Manila to Pampanga which would partly use the old right-of-way. The project commenced in 2007, construction has halted though as of 2011. The ill-governed project may continue after renegotiation, possibly in a changed way.[1][2][3][4]
