Casino is a railway station on the North Coast railway line in New South Wales, Australia. The station opened in 1930[1] and serves the Northern Rivers town of Casino. The station consists of an island style platform with a track on only one of the platform faces. A passing loop lies adjacent to the running line. Immediately north of the station lies the junction to the now closed Murwillumbah branch line, a roundhouse and turntable. It is served by NSW TrainLink XPT passenger trains to Brisbane and is the terminus of a daily XPT train to and from Sydney. A station was also located at South Casino, but closed in 1974.
