Islington railway station is located on the Gawler railway line in the inner northern Adelaide suburbs of Dudley Park and Prospect. It is located 6.0 km by railway from the Adelaide Railway Station. The TNT yard adjacent to the station was used mainly by GMH (Holden) and TNT. The yard probably closed in the 1990s, and remained unused until 2008 when it was completely demolished to make way for a new residential development, which may include the station being re-built or upgraded.

Timetable change[edit]

Since 27 April 2008, Islington has been serviced every 15 minutes during weekday off-peak and peak hours by almost all trains using the line; only the express trains that go Adelaide-Mawson Lakes-Salisbury-Elizabeth-Smithfield-Gawler-Gawler Oval-Gawler Central and the other way around do not service Islington. On weekends and public holidays Islington is served by one train per hour in each direction.
