West Ryde railway station is a railway station in West Ryde on the Northern line of the CityRail network. It serves a well established commercial and residential area, and crosses busy Victoria Road which carries many bus routes.

HistoryEdit

The station was opened as Ryde station on 17 September 1886. Ryde station's name was changed to West Ryde on 8 October 1945

InfrastructureEdit

It has three tracks widening to four on the outbound side of the station. On the inbound side of the station the three tracks merge into two. The tracks are paired by direction, meaning the island platform is dedicated to city bound trains while outbound trains leave from the single side platform. The station is generally served by two trains per hour, with additional trains at peak hours. A small number of long distance interurban trains also stop at West Ryde. West Ryde has Easy Access for wheelchairs, the street level platforms being connected to an overhead booking office by stairs and lifts. It is the closest station to the Sydney Live Steam Locomotive Society miniature railway.

SignallingEdit

West Ryde Signal Box was a timber structure situated on the city end of platform 3. Until 1937 it controlled a level crossing on Victoria Road. Also situated at West Ryde was a water board siding and a connection to the former tram network, which provided for transfer of vehicles between light and heavy rail systems. It was closed in 1982, when control was transferred to Epping signal box. Epping Signal Box was closed on 12 November 2006. Control of the area was then transferred to Strathfield signal box and then to the new Homebush signal box in October 2008.
