Lilleküla railway station (Estonian: Lilleküla raudteepeatus) is a railway station in Tallinn, the capital of Estonia. It is the second stop on Elron's western route after the terminus Tallinn's main railway station Balti jaam. It is located about 2 km south of Balti jaam between the subdistricts Lilleküla and Uus Maailm. The station is served by all commuter trains heading to Keila, Paldiski, Riisipere and Kloogaranna. It consists of two 130 metre platforms.
Although the Tallinn–Paldiski railway existed already in 1870, a station on the site was opened in 1928. The line from Tallinn to back then a nearby town Nõmme (as far as Pääsküla) was electrified already in 1924. At first the station bore the name "Ameerika". There was also a little wooden station building which was demolished in 1998.
In 2012 the old platforms were replaced with new lower ones and a pedestrian tunnel was built.
