Ban Klong Luk Border railway station (Thai: สถานีรถไฟด่านพรมแดนบ้านคลองลึก) is a railway station in Thailand and is the last stop of the Aranyaprathet Main Line of the Eastern Line located in Thailand, before entering Cambodia. It is located in Aranyaprathet Subdistrict, Aranyaprathet District, Sa Kaeo Province on the border between Thailand and Cambodia.

Ban Klong Luk Border railway station is classified as a third class railway station. It is 260.23 km (161 mi) from Hua Lamphong (Bangkok railway station) and located on the south side of Rong Kluea Market, the largest retail and wholesale second-hand clothing market in the eastern Thailand.[1]

This station has a history of more than 40 years. The building has been completed for a long time, but remained unused. In the last few years, the State Railway of Thailand (SRT) repaired and renovated the tracks from Aranyaprathet railway station, located 6 km (3 mi) away. The official opening ceremony took place on 22 April 2019 and the first rail services were operated on 1 July 2019.[2] Services are currently suspended due to COVID-19 and as of September 2021, trains run only to Aranyaprathet.
