Padstow is a railway station on the Airport, Inner West & South Line of the Sydney Trains network. Located in the Sydney suburb of Padstow, it serves a residential area. Padstow is an intermediate station with an island platform serving two tracks. It opened in 1931 with the opening of the East Hills railway line from Tempe to East Hills,[1] and opened with only one track until the line to East Hills was duplicated in 1987. The station has been equipped with Easy Access lifts for wheelchairs since about 2003.

Platforms and services[edit]

Padstow is currently an interchange in non-peak between 'all stations' trains to East Hills and 'limited stops' trains to Campelltown and Macarthur. Padstow is served mostly by four 'all-stations' trains per hour and four 'limited stops' trains via the airport, with some additional trains during peak hours.[2]

In 2013 a Rail Clearways project to quadruplicate the East Hills line between Kingsgrove and Revesby was completed. The two additional tracks do not have platforms at Padstow.

As of the new Sydney Trains timetables on Sunday the 20th of October 2013: on weekdays the station is served by 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 four trains per hour in each direction for most of the day.
