History[edit]

Station seen through the street entrance.

The Doomben railway line through Clayfield station opened on 3 September 1882. It was electrified in 1988, and all passenger services on the line were suspended in September 1993 by a Goss Labor Party government as part of a state-wide rationalisation of the rail network with the closing or suspending of under-utilised or unprofitable rail lines. Only on days of major race events at nearby race tracks did few special services run on the line, and only to adjoining stations of Ascot and Doomben.

Electric passenger services resumed on 27 January 1998 under a Borbidge National Party government, but only as far as Doomben,[1] with bus connections to the other abandoned stations.
