Baldwin Avenue Railway Station, in the suburb of Mount Albert, is on the Western Line of the Auckland railway network. The station has offset side platforms connected by a level crossing.

History[edit]

The old layout (pre-2010)
  • 1953: Opened as a wayside halt.[2]
  • 1966: The line between Morningside and Avondale was double-tracked, leading to two new platforms being built. These platforms were off-set from each other.[2]
  • 1993: The platforms were raised to meet the standards of the new ex-Perth trains.[2]
  • 2011: An upgraded and lengthened station was opened, with the platforms directly opposite each other.
