The current island platform opened on 19 December 1982, as part of the duplication of the line between Bayswater and Ringwood stations. It was once the destination for freight trains conveying cement, the last train running on 24 June 1987 when the traffic was relocated to Lyndhurst station, near Dandenong. Bayswater was upgraded to a Premium station in 2001.
In 1998 a train maintenance and stabling facilities opened as part of the replacement of Jolimont Yard. The buildings are approximately 2,850 m² in size, and permit bogie repair and replacement, under carriage and overhead work.
