Duffields is a passenger rail station on MARC Train's Brunswick Line, in the community of Duffields, West Virginia.[1] Since it is located in West Virginia, the station is maintained by the West Virginia State Rail Authority rather than by MARC itself.

In 2015, a study began to look into the feasibility of replacing the station with a new station in nearby Ranson, West Virginia.[4]
