North Filton is a planned station on the Henbury Loop line, located between the Filton junctions and a reopened Henbury station. It will be located on the site of the former North Filton Platform, which finally closed to passengers in 1986, and will serve the new neighbourhood that YTL Developments is creating on the site of Filton Airfield.

According to Friends of Suburban Bristol Railways, the name may be changed to Brabazon (view source).

The project to reopen the Henbury Loop as a branch line terminating at Henbury is part of Phase 2 of the MetroWest programme. Great Western Railway will provide an hourly service between Bristol Temple Meads and Henbury, calling at Lawrence Hill, Stapleton Road, Filton Abbey Wood and North Filton. An additional station at Ashley Down is at the planning stage and a further station at Horfield is under consideration.
