Derker railway station was a railway station in Derker, an area of Oldham in Greater Manchester, England. It was on the Oldham Loop Line, 13 km (8.1 mi) north east of Manchester Victoria and was managed by Northern Rail at the time of closure.

It was opened, initially on an experimental basis, on 30 August 1985[1] to replace Royton Junction station, ½ mile further along the line.

The station closed on 3 October 2009 for the conversion of the line to Metrolink and will re-open as Derker Metrolink station in the summer of 2012.
