Bayswater Station is a Transperth railway station located 6.7 kilometres (4.2 mi) north-east of Perth railway station, Western Australia, on the Midland Line.

History[edit]

The station opened in 1896. From 1897 until 1956 it was the junction for the branch railway to the nearby Ascot Racecourse.[1][2] Local references to the railway line, and the bridge over the Swan River usually referred to the line as the Belmont branch railway, and the Belmont bridge due to the current suburb of Ascot being known as part of Belmont at the time.[3] The service was suspended during the 1926 floods [4]
