History[edit]

Southbound view from Platform 2 in October 2006

Campsie station opened on 1 February 1895 when the Bankstown line opened from Sydenham to Belmore.[1][2]

In 1915, the station was remodelled when the Metropolitan Goods Line was built to the north of the existing lines. Platforms were provided that were used by railway workers' trains to Enfield South, Delec and Hope Street. These services ceased in 1996. These shorter platforms remain in situ, however with the Metropolitan Goods Line not connected to the Sydney Trains network, are not used.

In 2001, a new booking office was opened on the footbridge.[2]
