Khao Chum Thong Junction railway station is a railway station located in Khuan Koei Subdistrict, Ron Phibun District, Nakhon Si Thammarat. The station is a class 2 railway station, located 781.018 km (485.3 mi) from Thon Buri railway station. This station is the junction for the Southern Line mainline and the Nakhon Si Thammarat Branch Line.
Khao Chum Thong Junction opened as a junction railway station in October 1914, along the Thung Song Junction-Phatthalung section of the Southern Line. Initially, the station was called "Sam Yaek Nakhon" (lit. Three-way Junction for Nakhon [Si Thammarat]). Later the name was changed to the current name in 1917, under the orders of King Vajiravudh.
In the past Khao Chum Thong was a station that all trains must stop as it was a water and wood fueling station. However, these facilities were removed in 1982, when no more steam locomotives were used.
