History[edit]

Bayswater station, circa 1900

Bayswater station opened in 1896. From 1897 until 1956 it was the junction station for the Belmont spur line to the nearby Ascot Racecourse.[1][2]

Originally built as two side platforms, the station was later rebuilt as a single island platform. In 2020, Bayswater is scheduled to become a junction station again, when the Forrestfield-Airport Link opens to the east.[3][4]
