Often called Carnegie Station, not to be confused with Carnegie Station a pastoral lease in Western Australia

Carnegie railway station is located on the Pakenham and Cranbourne lines in Victoria, Australia. It serves the south-eastern Melbourne suburb of Carnegie opening on 14 May 1879 as Rosstown, being renamed Carnegie on 1 May 1909.[1]

Boom barriers replaced interlocked gates at the Koornang Road level crossing in 1967.[2]

In March 2014, the Level Crossing Removal Authority announced a grade separation project to replace the Koornang Road level crossing immediately to the west of the station. This will include rebuilding the station.[3]

Carnegie has two side platforms. It is serviced by Metro Trains' Pakenham and Cranbourne line services.[4][5]
