Quakers Hill is a station on the Richmond railway line, and serves the residential community of Quakers Hill. It is served by the T1 Western Line and T5 Cumberland Line of the Sydney Trains network. Two sets of points at the southern end of the station allow trains to terminate on either platform.
Quakers Hill is the 71st most patronised railway station in Sydney (out of a total of 176 stations), with an average of 3350 passengers boarding per day.
The tracks through the station were electrified in 1975. The station had a crossing loop until the line from Marayong was duplicated to Quakers Hill in 2002. In 2011 the second track was extended to Schofields.
An easy access upgrade involving the construction of a new overhead concourse was completed in 2011. Prior to the Easy Access upgrade, the station had an overhead ticket office attached to a footbridge. This arrangement could become congested due the narrowness of the footbridge and the position of the ticket office. The ticket office is now conveniently placed on the platform. This has seriously helped the recent population growth in Quakers Hill and other surrounding areas.
