Melksham railway station is a railway station serving the town of Melksham in Wiltshire, England. It is on the branch line from Chippenham to Trowbridge that was originally part of the Wilts, Somerset and Weymouth Railway, absorbed in 1850 by the Great Western Railway. The station opened with the original section of the line between Thingley Junction and Westbury, on 5 September 1848. British Railways closed the station in 1966 but reopened it in 1985.
