Koidula railway station (Estonian: Koidula raudteejaam) is a railway station in Koidula, Estonia, on the Russian border. It merges the TartuPechory and ValgaPechory railways just before the Russian border (Pechory is located straight after the border). The station opened in September 2011, and is a few yards from the border with Russia border and the railway station at.[1][2] The main purpose of the station is making the crossing of Russian border easier for both goods and passengers. It also enabled the traffic on "Southeast Estonian Triangle" (TartuValgaPiusa–Tartu) without crossing the Russian border. Currently however there are no cross-border passenger trains, and services from Pskov to Pechory do not connect with the Elron services in Estonia.[3]

The station has up to two trains a day to Tartu and Piusa, operated by Elron.[4]
