Cabramatta railway station is located on the Main South line, serving the Sydney suburb of Cabramatta. It is served by Sydney Trains T2 Inner West & Leppington, T3 Bankstown and T5 Cumberland line services.
Cabramatta station opened in 1870 on the Granville to Liverpool section of the Main South line. On 8 October 1924, Cabramatta line became a junction station when another branch of the Main South line opened from Sefton, joining the existing line just north of the station.
In April 1996, the junction was upgraded from a low speed one with an 80 km/h (49.7 mph) speed limit. To make the higher speeds possible, the track centres have been widened from 4 m (13.12 ft) at the platforms to about 12 m (39.37 ft) at the diamond crossing at the heart of the junction. Longer points were installed.
As part of the Southern Sydney Freight Line project, a third line was built behind the eastern side of the station. Due to limited space, an overhead concourse was constructed to replace a building on platform 2. The new concourse opened in 2011, the line in December 2013.
