Wynnewood station is a SEPTA Regional Rail station in Wynnewood, Pennsylvania. It is located at Wynnewood and Penn Roads in Philadelphia's western suburbs, and is served by most Paoli/Thorndale Line trains with the exception of several express runs.

The station was built in 1870 by the Wilson Brothers architectural firm for the Pennsylvania Railroad,[4] and is one of the historic station buildings on this line built before 1930.

The station offers a small retail space, which has been occupied by the Main Line Baking Company since 2010. The space was formerly occupied by Pup's Cafe (2009), Quaker Coffee (2005 - 2008), and Irish Bake Shoppe (1999 - 2005). The ticket office at this station is open weekdays 6:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m and 11:45 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. (excluding holidays). There are 239 daily and permit parking spaces at the station. This station is 7.4 track miles from Suburban Station. In 2003, the average total weekday boardings at this station was 659, and the average total weekday alightings was 684.[3]

Restoration and beautification[edit]

The Wynnewood Civic Association is a non-profit group of volunteers that maintains the landscaping and actively works to preserve and beautify the historic landmark.
