Civic railway station was the original Newcastle railway station and was opened 30 Mar 1857. It was then renamed Honeysuckle on 9 Mar 1858 and again to Honeysuckle point on the 1st Sep 1866. The station was then closed in 1872 only to be reopened in 1935 as its current name of Civic. Civic railway station is located in the Newcastle are on the Newcastle & Central Coast Line and the Hunter Line. The station is a side station with two platforms. The station was served by intercity trains to Sydney and diesel railcars to Maitland, Dungog and Scone prior to its closure in December 2014, pending the construction of a light rail line from Wickham to the CBD.

Platforms and servicesEdit

The station has 2 platforms six carriages long, therefore passengers on longer trains are required to use the rear six carriages. To reduce delays to road traffic at the adjacent level crossing, the Newcastle bound platform was lengthened and the signal protecting the level crossing was relocated. Previously, the level crossing remained closed from when a train approached the platform, for the whole time that the train was stopped and until the train cleared the level crossing causing heavy delays to car traffic. As a result of this platform modification, the level crossing does not close until the train is ready to depart from the platform.
