Ashfield railway station is located on the Main Suburban line, serving the suburb of Ashfield, in Sydney, Australia. It is served by Sydney Trains T2 Inner West & Leppington line services.

History[edit]

The station c. 1900

Ashfield station opened on 26 September 1855 as part of the original Sydney to Parramatta line.[2] .[3][4]

In 2002, the station was largely rebuilt with a new concrete aerial concourse and most of the platform buildings were demolished.[4] 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.

In May 2018 Ashfield became the first station in New South Wales to have the OpalPay Park & Ride facility installed.[5]

Platforms and services[edit]

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