History
OpenedMarch 24, 1891

Marilao railway station was a former railroad station in the Philippine National Railways' Dagupan line, and is also a proposed railway station that is situated on the Northrail line. This line has been used for passenger and freight transportation by Philippine National Railways and its precursors in the past.

History[edit]

The station was supposed to be built 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.[1][2][3][4]

Revival[edit]

The station will be part of the North–South Commuter Railway.[5] This station will be located near SM City Marilao.

The former station was abandoned due to the Mecauayan Railroad Bridge being destroyed during the eruption of Mt. Pinatubo. Eventually, it was demolished and primed to be an elevated station for the modern line.
