Adamstown railway station is located on the Main Northern line in New South Wales, Australia. It serves the southern Newcastle suburb of Adamstown, and was opened on 15 August 1887.[2]

As part of the electrification of the line in the early 1980s, new station buildings were built, the western relief line and Platform 3 removed, and the 1939 built signal box on Platform 1 that used to control movements to the Belmont line decommissioned on 4 December 1983.[3][4] Until December 1991, the Belmont line diverged to the south-east of the station.

The station was upgraded with new lifts and footbridge with work completed by late 2017.[5]
