התחנה על קו מסילת הברזל יפו-ירושלים נחנכה בשנת 1892 ושימשה את תושבי הכפרים בסביבה.
מבנה התחנה סימטרי. בקומת הקרקע אולם קבלת נוסעים ובקומה העליונה משרדים ומגורים למנהל התחנה.
בשנת 1915, עם סלילת הקו לבאר שבע, הסתעף קו נוסף מהתחנה לכיוון באר שבע.
התחנה נסגרה בשנת 1998 עם סגירת הקו לירושלים.
מאז עומדת התחנה בשיממונה. בשנת 2010 קיבלה רשות ניקוז "שורק-לכיש" במכרז את התחנה, ובכוונתה לשקמה ולהופכה לאתר תיירותי.

The Nahal Sorek railway station on the Jaffa-Jerusalem line was inaugurated in 1892 and served the residents of nearby villages.
In 1915, a new line to Be’er Sheva was added to the station.
Abandoned since 1998, the building suffered extensive damage. In 2010, the Sorek-Lachish Drainage Authority won a tender for the structure and intends to restore it and turn it into a tourist site.
