Thomastown railway station is located on the South Morang line in Victoria, Australia. It serves the north-eastern Melbourne suburb of Thomastown opening on 23 December 1889.[1] A completely redeveloped Thomastown station was opened in late 2011.

It was served by country trains on the line to Whittlesea, being served by country trains. Electrification and suburban trains were extended along 4.4 kilometres of single track to Thomastown in 1929, paid for by a land developer who paid for the works, who also guaranteed against operating loses.[2] From 1931 it was the terminus of the AEC railmotor service from Whittlesea, remaining so until electric suburban services were extended to Lalor in November 1959, and services beyond discontinued and the line closed.[3] It was upgraded to a Premium station in 1996.[4]

A VicRoads park and ride upgrade was opened in early 2007, with an additional 100 car spaces opened to the south-east of the station, taking the total to 330.

As part of the duplication of the line from Keon Park to Epping, a second side platform was added and the existing station rebuilt opening on 28 November 2011.[5][6]
