Leightonfield is a CityRail railway station on Sydney's Bankstown and Inner West railway lines. It serves an industrial area in the suburb of Villawood. It has two side platforms with access to both platforms via stairs. This does not allow for Easy Access for wheelchairs. A small yard for freight trains lies on the southern side of the station. From 2011 the yard connects to the Southern Sydney Freight Line. A passing loop on the SSFL exists here as well. The western end of the yard is the interim terminus of the SSFL. It uses the turnout for the yard to access the passenger lines.
The station is serviced by up to two trains per hour in each direction on the Inner West Line during peak hours and at night on weekdays, and two trains per hour on the Bankstown Line all day. This makes four trains per hour in each direction during peak hours and at night on weekdays, and two trains per hour in each direction outside these times. The trains are not evenly spaced.
