Richmond railway station is a station on the Richmond branch of the Western line of Sydney's CityRail network. It is the terminus of the line and is the farthest distance one can travel from Central on the suburban CityRail network. It serves the residential and commercial area of Richmond, New South Wales, Australia, as well as surrounding suburbs. The station has an island platform served by two dead end tracks, plus a stabling siding. The platform has ramps down to the street access and therefore has Easy Access for wheelchairs.

HistoryEdit

The line opened in 1864. In 1926, an extension northwards to Kurrajong opened. This extension closed in 1952 after flooding, due to low and uneconomical levels of traffic, and little evidence of it now remains. Electrification was completed to Richmond station in 1991, and at that time significant remodelling of the tracks at the station was performed, including the building of the current train storage sidings on the northern side of the station and removal of tracks from the southern side.
