Ashhurst Railway Station exists on the Palmerston North–Gisborne Line between Palmerston North and the Manawatu Gorge serving the town of Ashhurst. The station existed as a flag-stop station before being made a formal stop in 1892. The station was sold in 1980 and the buildings and facilities were demolished sometime after and replaced with a simple shelter. The station was closed in 2001. No regular passenger service uses the line and there are no-longer any structures at the station; only the abandoned platform remains.
