Farley was a closed station on the Main North railway line in New South Wales. It opened in 1860[1] initially as Wollombi Road, and closed to passenger services in 1975. It was a side platform with a substantial station building which lay disused until eventual demolition. Only the platform face remains. Save our Rails, a Newcastle rail lobby group, has suggested opening a new railway station in the Farley area to improve rail access to Newcastle.[2]
