Nizamabad Junction Railway Station is an A-Category railway station which serves the city of Nizamabad, Telangana, India. It is a major station on Secunderabad-Manmad railway line, also serving as the junction point for Secunderabad, Peddapalli, Jankampet/Mudkhed Junctions. The station falls under Hyderabad railway division of South Central Railway which is one of the zones of Indian Railways. Due to overgrowth on the western side of the city, the Jankampet Junction railway station on west corridor falls under Nizamabad.
The Nizam of Hyderabad ruled over the Deccan region during 18th century and under his reign the railway line between Secundrabad and Manmad was constructed in the year 1905.The railway station was named after then ruler of the Nizam state Nizam-ul-Mulk as Nizamabad.
On 30 June 2004 the SCR operated the last metre gauge train on the Nizamabad–Manoharabad line bringing to an end the metre gauge services which started in the 1930s on the Secunderabad–Manmad line of the Nizam's State Railways (formerly Hyderabad-Godavari Valley Railways)

Jankampet Jn. is another station located in western part of the city. This station also lies on Secunderabad-Manmad railway line and acts as the junction point for Jankampet-Bodhan railway line in Nizamabad district. Indian Railways also has plans for extending the railway line from Bodhan to Bidar which in turn will pave way for Nizamabad to have direct connectivity to Bidar and Gulbarga cities which are located in neighbouring state of Karnataka.
