Wallingford station is a SEPTA Regional Rail station in Wallingford, Pennsylvania. Located at Kershaw Road and Possum Hollow Road, it serves the Media/Elwyn Line. In 2013, this station saw 284 boardings and 420 alightings on an average weekday.[1]

The station was established by the Pennsylvania Railroad. In 1855, when the rail line was extended to Media through Wallingford, passing and freight sidings were built at the location. The present station was built in 1890 (although some sources claim it was built in 1880)[2] and designed by architect Frank Furness. For a time, this station also served as Wallingford's post office.[3]
