The Padang Besar railway station is a Malaysian train station located at and named after the border town of Padang Besar, Perlis. It is the northern-most station of the west coast line, connecting to the State Railway of Thailand's rail network.
The Padang Besar railway station has Malaysia's only integrated customs, immigration and quarantine facility for Malaysia and Thailand and rail passengers are processed for exiting Malaysia and entering Thailand (or vice versa if traveling the other direction) in the station. The Padang Besar station in Thailand only serves as a domestic station.
Padang Besar railway station's freight yard serves as a dryport for the northern part of Malaysia and IMT-GT. However, it has limited spaces to how much cargo can be loaded and unloaded, the Malaysian government has noticed the space limitation by working to use the reserved land to expand the station's freight yard.
