Fairfield is a railway station on Sydney Trains' Airport, Inner West & South Line and Cumberland Line. It serves a residential and commercial area in the suburb of Fairfield. It has a major bus interchange including services further in the Fairfield city and Parramatta. It has two side platforms, one side for Campbelltown via Liverpool trains, the other for City Circle via Granville or Schofields via Parramatta services.

The station was opened with the line in 1856 when a single platform and crossing loop were provided. Because the station ceased to be on the Main South line from the early 1920s, the station is relatively untouched architecturally.

The station has street access to both platforms, connected by a footbridge with lifts. It therefore qualifies as having Easy Access for wheelchairs.

A set of trailing points at the northern end of the station allows southbound trains to terminate on platform 2 and return to the city. There are, however, no trains currently timetabled to terminate at Fairfield, but this ability is occasionally used to support trackwork, which means that passengers are able to continue on their journey past Granville station.

Platforms and services[edit]

As of the new Sydney Trains timetables on Sunday the 20th of October 2013: on weekdays the station is served by four to six trains per hour in each direction for most of the day, with additional trains provided during peak hours; and on weekends the station is served by two to four trains per hour in each direction for most of the day.

During off-peak hours two to four train services terminate at Glenfield, those on the Airport, Inner West & South Line; and Cumberland Line trains operate only on weekdays, providing two train services continuing after Glenfield, stopping at all stations and terminating at Campbelltown. Passengers who would like to travel to stations beyond Glenfield would have to change at stations between Merrylands and Glenfield. [1] [2]

During weekends two of these four train services towards Campbelltown terminate at Glenfield; and Cumberland Line trains does not operate on weekends.
