The Ferny Grove railway line is a suburban railway line extending 12.1 km (7.5 mi) northwest from Brisbane (16.1 km from Central station by rail), the state capital of Queensland, Australia. It is part of the QR Citytrain network.
A branch line was opened from a junction at Mayne (Bowen Hills) to Enoggera in February 1899 and to Ferny Grove in 1918. The area was initially known as Ferny Flats, but the railway department changed the name of the railway station because of a Ferny Flats in New South Wales; the surrounding area followed suit. The line reached Dayboro, via Samford, on 27 September 1920.
As part of a larger rationalisation by the Government of Queensland of its train lines, the line was closed from Dayboro back to Ferny Grove in 1955 due to declining traffic.
Recent upgrades 
As of December 2009, the State Government has announced the remaining 3.2 km single track section between Keperra and Ferny Grove will be duplicated. Ferny Grove station will also be upgraded, including increasing car parking to around 1000 spaces and constructing a new bus interchange. It is proposed[by whom?] the Ferny Grove Tavern land be acquired to provide additional car parking as there are no other feasible design options to provide this additional car parking. Construction is expected to start in mid-2010 and be completed in 2012. The new platforms will open on Tuesday 10 April 2012.
Work was recently completed to duplicate the track between Mitchelton and Keperra, and also to upgrade the intervening stations, Oxford Park and Grovely, to two platforms. This upgrade allows additional services to operate on the line during peak hour, and removes waiting times outbound from Mitchelton and inbound from Keperra.
