Old Ford railway station was a former railway station in Old Ford, north of Bow, London. It was on the North London Railway between Victoria Park and Bow stations; the station was located on Old Ford Road, east of the junction with Lefevre Road (now Lefevre Walk).

It opened in 1867 but was closed in 1944 after damage from the Blitz cut off the railway east of Dalston Junction. The station buildings were demolished when the East Cross Route (formerly A102(M) but now A12) was built alongside the railway alignment in the late 1960s as part of the aborted London Motorway Box scheme. The track was subsequently lifted in the early 1980s, and a terrace of modern houses built in its place.
