Lithgow railway station is located on the Main Western line in New South Wales, Australia. It serves the Central West city of Lithgow. It has frequent NSW TrainLink services running to and from Sydney Central.
In 1957 the line was electrified through Lithgow to Bowenfels, but Lithgow is the present limit of electric operations. At the same time a refreshment room opened on the platform, this closed in July 1990 being the last example in the state. The station exit was originally located on the footbridge at the eastern end of the platform until replaced by the present concourse in August 1991.
