Platforms & services
Scone is the terminating point for NSW TrainLink's Hunter line services from Newcastle and a stopping point for NSW TrainLink Xplorer services. There are three local services to/from Newcastle on weekdays with two on weekends. Each day a northbound Xplorer service operates to Armidale and Moree with a southbound service operating to Sydney.
The station, with a single platform, is mostly unstaffed with no ticketing machine, with Hunter line passengers required to purchase a ticket at their destination. Country tickets can be purchased from the local community centre. The Hunter services were introduced by CityRail in September 1990.
Hunter line services usually terminate at the southern end of the platform which is slightly raised. Xplorers use the full platform.
