Lochinvar railway station is located on the Main Northern line in New South Wales, Australia. It serves the nearby town of Lochinvar opening on 2 July 1860.[1]

It briefly served as the terminus of the Great Northern Railway when it was extended from Maitland. In March 1862 Lochinvar lost its terminus status when the line was extended to Greta.

Originally there was only one platform with a second added in 1914 when the line was duplicated. As part of the Australian Rail Track Corporation's project to install a third track between Maitland and Whittingham, the station received a footbridge in 2012.[2][3]

Platforms & services[edit]

Lochinvar has two side platforms. It is serviced by NSW TrainLink Hunter line services travelling between Hamilton (Newcastle) and Muswellbrook/Scone. There are four services in each direction on weekdays, and two on weekends.[4]
