Ascot Vale railway station is located on the Craigieburn line in Victoria, Australia. It serves the north-western Melbourne suburb of Ascot Vale, opening on 1 November 1860, as part of the private Melbourne and Essendon Railway Company line to Essendon. The station closed with the line on 1 July 1864, but was reopened on 9 October 1871, under government ownership.
A temporary station building was provided in 1882, after duplication of the line, with the present building on Platform 1 dating from 1889. A signal box was provided in the same year, but was closed with the abolition of mechanical signalling.
