Orange railway station is located on the Main Western line in New South Wales, Australia. It serves the city of Orange, opening on 19 April 1877 when the line was extended from Blayney. It served as the terminus of the line until it was extended to Wellington on 1 June 1880.[1][2] A disused bay platform is located at the southern end.

Services[edit]

Orange is served by NSW TrainLink's daily Central West XPT service operating between Sydney and Dubbo and the weekly Outback Xplorer between Sydney and Broken Hill.[3]

NSW TrainLink road coach services operating between Lithgow, Dubbo and Nyngan also serve the station.[3]

About two kilometres south of the station, the Broken Hill line branches off. A platform known as Orange East Fork lies at the rail junction and is served by the Indian Pacific.[4] The Outback Xplorer however, uses Orange station and reverses back to the junction before continuing to its destination.
