Cheltenham railway station is located on the Frankston railway line in Victoria, Australia. It serves the south-eastern Melbourne suburb of Cheltenham, and opened on 19 December 1881.[1][2] It was designated as a Premium station on 8 March 1996.[3]

There was previously a siding on the eastern side of the station at the Melbourne end.[4] A signal panel was installed in the station building in 1972 to control trains terminating at Platform 1.[5]

Cheltenham station is a key part of the Cheltenham Major Activity Centre. In 2010, the Kingston City Council proposed a major redevelopment of the station environs, including a new station forecourt with a terraced plaza, giving more prominence to the heritage listed buildings at the station, and a new taxi rank, similar to that at Mentone station.[6] The proposal is yet to be implemented.

Platforms & services[edit]

Cheltenham is served by Metro Trains' Frankston line services.[7] It has two side platforms and one dock platform. The latter was served by one afternoon terminating service from Flinders Street that returned empty to the city, but from 12 October 2014, extra weekday Flinders Street-bound services began to use the platform.
