Silverdale railway station was a railway station that served the village of Silverdale, Staffordshire, England. It was opened by the North Staffordshire Railway in 1863 and closed to passengers in 1964.[1]

In its later years, the station was used by staff operating trains to and from the adjacent colliery. For this purpose, a large rail loader was built.[2]

Today, only the restored platforms are still in place. The station building has been rebuilt at the Apedale Heritage Centre.[2]

On 21 August 2009, work on Silverdale station platforms was observed with brickwork being repaired or repointed and they have now been restored as part of a railway footpath to Newcastle-U-Lyme.
