Westfield is a New Jersey Transit railroad station on the Raritan Valley Line, in Westfield, Union County, New Jersey, United States. The station consists of two buildings: the main building on the north (westbound platform) side of the track houses a non-profit group, the south (eastbound platform) side of the tracks houses the ticket office and waiting area and the platform has two ticket vending machines. The present north building was built in 1892 and the present south building was built in 1912. An access tunnel connects the two platforms and, like Cranford, there are historic photographs of Westfield displayed in the tunnel.
