Revesby railway station is the main intermediate terminus on the Airport Line of the Sydney Trains network. It serves the Sydney suburb of Revesby. Revesby features two island platforms and is serviced by both all-stations and faster limited-stop trains.
Revesby railway station opened with the rest of the East Hills railway line in December 1931. The original configuration was an island platform served by a single track. The line was electrified in 1939. In 1956 a crossing loop was opened. It was not until 1987 that the line was fully duplicated through Revesby, in association with the construction of the extension from East Hills to the Main South Line at Glenfield.
The Rail Clearways Program of the early 21st century saw the station's role change significantly, with plans to considerably boost capacity of the East Hills line by creating two centre turnbacks at the station to replace a side turnback at East Hills, and quadruplicating the line from Kingsgrove to Revesby. In 2006, construction commenced on a second island platform and a replacement footbridge with Easy Access for wheelchairs via lifts. Platform 3 opened in 2008, providing through services to the west. The existing platform 2 became a centre turnback with only a few services initially using the facility. In October 2009 the timetable changed, and Revesby replaced East Hills as the major intermediate terminus. Platform 4 opened in April 2013 at the completion of the quadruplication works. The concourse was also built at this time.
