Thirlmere is a former railway station which was located on the Picton – Mittagong loop railway line. It served Thirlmere, a small town in the Macarthur Region of New South Wales, Australia.

History[edit]

The station opened on 1 August 1885 as Redbank and was renamed Thirlmere in 1886.[1] The station along with the Loop Line was closed in 1978.

The station has been restored by Volunteers from the New South Wales Rail Transport Museum in Thirlmere.

Occasionally, the museum operates steam heritage trains on the line through the station, between Thirlmere, Picton and Buxton.[2]
