Lithgow railway station is a regional railway station on the Blue Mountains line of the CityRail intercity network, serving the town of Lithgow in the Central West area of New South Whales, Austrailia. The station has a single island platform; platform 1 is for 'Up' (towards Sydney) trains, platform 2 is for 'Down' (away from Sydney) trains, as is the convention in NSW.
In 2014, Lithgow received a new station canopy. The new steel canopies were installed on the station platform to provide better protection for customers against rain and sun exposure. This was part of the Transport Access Program.
Stopping PatternEditLithgow is served by one train each way every two hours in off-peak, with additional services during peak hours. It is the terminus of the Blue Mountains interurban passenger line, trains used to arrive on platform 2 to allow passengers to disembark before shunting forwards, then reversing into platform 1 to return to Sydney. Nowadays, trains can terminate on platform 2 can reverse straight back towards Sydney using a cross-over at the near Eskbank station (some trains still do the reversing onto platform 1 to allow other freight and CountryLink trains to pass through). The station is located in a cutting and is staffed and equipped with lifts for disabled access. The station is also served by a limited service to Bathurst, daily CountryLink XPT services to Dubbo, the weekly Xplorer to Broken Hill and the weekly Indian Pacific train to Adelaide and Perth. CountryLink road coach services operate to various destinations from the bus station in Railway Parade.
