History[edit]

The station c. 1900

Ashfield station opened on 26 September 1855 as part of the original Sydney to Parramatta line.[1] .[2][3]

In 2002, the station was largely rebuilt with a new concrete aerial concourse and most of the platform buildings were demolished.[3] Before completion of those facilities, the platforms were accessed from two pedestrian subways which incorporated separate booking offices. The western subway remains as a pedestrian thoroughfare.

The station has five platforms (two city bound, two outward bound, and one used as a turnback to the city).
