History buffs and train enthusiasts joined together to celebrate a momentous occasion in Tahmoor on Saturday.

July 13 marked 100 years since the Tahmoor railway station opened. Saturday also marked the centenary for the nearby Yerrinbool station.

NSW TrainLink acting chief executive Dale Merrick said it was a good time to reflect on the state's proud rail history and start thinking about future transport needs.

Mr Merrick said these stations had provided "new growth" and "opportunities for the benefit of local communities".

"Today, NSW TrainLink operates 266 services a week between these stations, connecting family and friends and getting commuters to and from work," he said.

"As we celebrate the history of these two great community landmarks, it reminds us of how much things have changed and what exciting changes are still to come."

The Tahmoor station centenary event was organised by the Picton and District Historical Society, with support from NSW TrainLink.
