Bratislava Lamač railway station (Slovak: Železničná stanica Bratislava-Lamač) is a small railway station (technically a train halt) inside the Lamač borough of Bratislava, Slovakia. Until 1947 the station was called "Lamač". The railway station is administered under Bratislava hlavná stanica, with the station master (Slovak: prednosta) residing there as well. It lies at the edge of the Lamač and Dúbravka boroughs of Bratislava.
Bratislava Lamač railway station is the smallest true railway station in Bratislava. It contains four tracks of rails allowing the trains to cross tracks or the express trains to overtake slower passenger or freight trains. The station building was reconstructed in 2007.
In the past, stone from the nearby quarry was being loaded onto trains here. The narrow-rail line for this purpose was built in 1924.
On 21 May 2012 a 41-year-old woman died when she stumbled at the first platform when crossing the lines, falling down under a passing train. The accident caused seven trains to be delayed for a total time of 201 minutes.
