Granville railway station is a major station in the suburb of Granville, Sydney. The station is at the junction of Sydney Trains's Western and South lines and has traditionally served as a transfer station between these two lines, a role that has been diluted somewhat since the opening of the Cumberland Line in 1996. The station is also served by some intercity trains of the Blue Mountains Line.

HistoryEdit

The station opened in 1860 as Parramatta Junction, and is close to the original terminus of the first railway line in New South Wales which was completed in 1855. Granville Junction lies immediately to the west of the station and is the junction point of the Main Western Line and the original Main South Line, now referred to as the Old Main South since the opening of the Lidcombe-Cabramatta bypass.

On 18 January 1977, the Granville railway disaster, Australia's worst rail disaster, occurred resulting in the death of 83 people, about 200 m west of the station.

In 1996, the "Y Link' track between Harris Park and Merrylands stations opened, allowing direct services between the western and south lines (the Cumberland line) and removing the need to interchange at Granville. As of 2011, Cumberland line services consist of a few weekday peak hour trains, meaning Granville remains an important interchange point.
