Marcus Hook (formerly known as Linwood) is a station along the SEPTA Wilmington/Newark Line and Amtrak's Northeast Corridor in Marcus Hook, Pennsylvania. Amtrak does not stop here; the station is only served by SEPTA. Many locals continue on to Wilmington and Newark. However, this station is a terminus for some weekday trains and many weekend trains. Located at 12th & Washington Streets, the station has a 147-space parking lot. The line offers southbound service to Wilmington and Newark, Delaware and northbound service to Philadelphia.

Marcus Hook Station was originally built by the Pennsylvania Railroad. Two other Baltimore and Ohio Railroad stations also used to exist in the Borough.[1]
