Valimo railway station (Finnish: Valimon rautatieasema, Swedish: Gjuteriets järnvägsstation) is a station on the Helsinki commuter rail network located in the western part of Helsinki, Finland, between Huopalahti and Pitäjanmäki stations. It is located about 7 kilometres (4.3 mi) to the northwest/west of Helsinki Central railway station, in the district of Pitäjänmäki.
Originally it was opened as Strömberg's stop in 1949 near to Strömberg's factory at the request of factory workers. The name was changed to Valimo on 30 May 1976. Before the 1980s, commuter trains would stop only on request.
