Bocaue railway station is a former railway station that was situated on the Northrail line. This line has in the past been used for passenger and freight transportation by Philippine National Railways and its precursors. It was located approximately 1 kilometer to the north of Bocaue proper. The station was supposed to be replaced by a new one 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]
