History
Opened March 24, 1891
Rebuilt 2009 (partly)

Caloocan railway station used to be a railway station on the railway line connecting Manila to northern Luzon. It was situated adjecent to Apolinario Mabini St., close to Sangandaan Police Station. The station was abandoned in the 1980s like the rest of the railway stations on Northrail, but was supposed to be replaced by a new one in as a result of the rehabilitation of Southrail and 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 Northrail project may continue after renegotiation, possibly in a changed way.[1][2][3][4]
