Guildford Railway Station is a Transperth station 12.5 km from Perth railway station, in Western Australia, on the Midland Line.

History[edit]

The station opened in 1881 as the terminus of the original Eastern Railway from Fremantle. In the mid-1880s a second station was built, and a third in 1898. In 1960 the main station was demolished for a carpark, but the 1898 shelter and platform survive today.[1]
