Strathfield railway station is a major interchange on Sydney's CityRail network and a hub for buses serving the northern part of the inner west. The suburb of Strathfield includes many high-rise apartments and a number of shopping centres such as Strathfield Plaza. These are mostly on the southern side of the station along with a large taxi stand and bus terminal. Strathfield is located on the Northern, Inner West, Western and South railway lines and is also a stop for trains on the CountryLink network. The station has Easy Access for wheelchairs.

HistoryEdit

The first platforms were opened as Redmyre in 1877. The name was changed to Strathfield on 29 August 1900. The current platforms were completed on 7 March 1927. In addition, a platform and building was erected at the up end of platform 8 which provided a mortuary receiving facility. This was subsequently converted to a store for the Railway Refreshment Room on the station. Rail traffic in the Strathfield area has been controlled from Strathfield signal box, which is actually situated at Homebush, since 1983. Signalling at Strathfield is controlled by an entrance-exit (NX) route control panel with an early automatic route setting (ARS) system, which was manufactured by Westinghouse in the United Kingdom. This system is connected to double light colour light signals and electro-pneumatic switch machines on the ground. The 1926-vintage power box, which had a Westinghouse miniature lever frame, still stands to the west end of platform 8.

PlatformsEdit

The station has eight platforms, with the northern platforms (1-3) serving Countrylink and inter-city trains; (4-6) serving the Northern and Western lines; and the southern platforms (7-8) serving the South and Inner West lines. On the north end of the station is a stop for Murrays, Greyhound Australia and other road coach services. Access to the platforms is via a pedestrian subway with ramps on either side of the subway leading up to the platforms. The ramps are too steep for disabled passengers, so lifts have also been provided. An indicator board is located in the centre of the subway. The subway can get congested at peak times. The station is served by thirteen to sixteen trains per hour each way, with additional trains during weekday peak hours
