Lochinvar railway station is located on the Main Northern line in New South Wales, Australia. It serves the nearby town of Lochinvar opening on 2 July 1860.[2]

It briefly served as the terminus of the Great Northern Railway when it was extended from Maitland. In March 1862 Lochinvar ceased to be a terminus when the line was extended to Greta.

Platforms & services

Lochinvar has two side platforms. It is serviced by NSW TrainLink Hunter Line services travelling between Newcastle, Muswellbrook and Scone.[3]

Improvements

A second platform was added in 1914 when the line was duplicated. As part of the Australian Rail Track Corporation's project to install a third track between Maitland and Whittingham, the station's platforms were extended and a footbridge installed in 2012.[4][5]

Platform Line Stopping pattern Notes
1 services to Newcastle [3]
2 services to Muswellbrook & Scone [3]
