The Oulu Railway Station is located in the centre of Oulu, Finland, in the city district of Vaara. All trains are operated by VR. Nearby is the bus station for long-distance buses.
The railway station was built in 1886 when the Ostrobothnia railway line reached Oulu.
The railway from the south to Oulu was electrified in 1983, using overhead electric wires at 25 kV. The electrification northwards from Oulu to Rovaniemi was not completed until 2004. In 2006 the railway from Oulu to Iisalmi was also electrified. The fastest trains from Oulu to Helsinki are operated by VR’s Pendolino trains.
