Civic railway station was located on the Newcastle line in New South Wales, Australia. It served the Civic part of Newcastle's central business district, opening on 30 March 1857 as Newcastle railway station. On 9 March 1858 it was renamed Honeysuckle and again on 1 September 1866 to Honeysuckle Point. The station closed in 1872, only to be reopened as Civic on 22 December 1935.
Platforms & services
Civic had two side platforms that could accommodate six carriages. Passengers on longer trains were required to use the rear six carriages. It was serviced by NSW TrainLink Central Coast & Newcastle line services from Sydney to Newcastle and Hunter line services from Newcastle to Maitland, Muswellbrook, Scone, Telarah and Dungog.
In 2007, Platform 2 was extended at its western end to allow Merewether Street level crossing to remain open while trains are stopped at the station.
