Leightonfield is a Sydney Trains railway station served by Sydney's Bankstown Line. It serves an industrial area in the suburb of Villawood. It has two side platforms with access to both platforms via stairs. This does not allow for Easy Access for wheelchairs.
A small yard for freight trains lies on the southern side of the station. From 2011 the yard connects to the Southern Sydney Freight Line. A passing loop on the SSFL exists here as well. The western end of the yard was the interim terminus of the SSFL until December 2012, when the line was extended to Macarthur. It uses the turnout for the yard to access the passenger lines.
