Buenos Aires Línea Belgrano Sur Railway Station (Spanish: Estación Buenos Aires Línea Belgrano Sur) is a passenger railway station in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The station is located a short distance north of the Riachuelo River in the barrio of Barracas, an outlying neighbourhood in the southern part of the city. It is commonly referred to as simply Estación Buenos Aires, meaning "Buenos Aires Station".

Despite its name, Estación Buenos Aires is not the principal railway station of the city and is only a secondary commuter rail station. The local transport company UGOFE operates various daily diesel trains to and from the Buenos Aires suburbs along two branches of the Línea Belgrano Sur. Destinations include several stations in La Matanza Partido.

The station is accessible by some city bus services but it is the only railway station in Buenos Aires that has no access to the Buenos Aires Metro.
