The station was built in the mid-19th century by the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway. It radically altered the village, allowing workers to live in Parbold and commute to urban areas throughout the North West.
The railway station also provided a natural centre for the village which it still is today. It was originally named Newburgh after the nearest large village (Newburgh) but this became Newburgh for Parbold and then Parbold for Newburgh. At this point Dalton wanted to also to be mentioned in the official name so the railway company decided to just call the station Parbold (this happened before 1910 as the station was called Parbold in the Bradshaw of that date). At one point however the station was again renamed as Parbold for Newburgh (see 1960s and 1980s British Railway timetables.) Finally in 1973 the station became once again plain Parbold.
In 2005 the railway station underwent a £250,000 restoration project which saw the ticket office restored to its former glory and new fences and CCTV installed.
Monday to Saturday daytimes there are two trains per hour in each direction westbound towards Southport and eastbound towards Manchester (one per hour to Piccadilly and the Airport via Bolton and one per hour to Victoria via Atherton.)
