Fassifern railway station is a railway station located in Fassifern, New South Wales, Australia in the Lake Macquarie area on the Newcastle & Central Coast Line. The station is a major point along the line (it's usually included in the stop-off stations of express trains), providing access to the line for a large part of the area. The station has three platforms, although only two are in use, the third being the former branch line platform for the now closed Toronto railway line. The station is served by intercity trains to Sydney and local trains to Morisset. In recent years Fassifern became a stopping-station for longer-distance NSW TrainLink XPT services.
