North Fambridge railway station is on the Crouch Valley Line in the East of England, serving the village of North Fambridge, Essex. It is 37 miles 25 chains (60.0 km) down-line from London Liverpool Street and is situated between South Woodham Ferrers to the east and Althorne to the west. Its three-letter station code is NFA.

The line and station were opened in 1889 by the Great Eastern Railway. North Fambridge station is currently managed by Abellio Greater Anglia, which also operates all trains serving it. The typical off-peak service is of one westbound train every 40 minutes to Wickford and one eastbound train every 40 minutes to Southminster, with additional services at peak times. Some peak services continue to or from Shenfield and/or London Liverpool Street via the Great Eastern Main Line.

As North Fambridge is at the midpoint of this single-track line, its double-track configuration provides a passing loop to allow two trains on the line at any one time. The station was originally called Fambridge (with the code FAM) but its name was modified to North Fambridge in May 2007.
