Between 1882 and 1963 it was the junction station for the Campbelltown-Camden line.[3]

On 5 May 1968, the Main South line was electrified from Liverpool.[4] It was the extremity of the Sydney suburban network until extended to Macarthur opened in July 1985. However many services still terminate at Campbelltown.
