Carrum railway station is located on the Frankston line in Victoria, Australia. It serves the south-eastern Melbourne suburb of Carrum, opening on 1 August 1882.[1]

A signal box is located on Platform 1, which controls a crossover to allow trains to terminate here. The interlocked frame at this signal box was abolished in 1976, replaced by a control panel,[2] with boom barriers replacing interlocked gates at the level crossing, at up end of the station, in 1977.[3] Approximately 100 metres south of the station is a stabling yard that can hold a number of trains. It was upgraded to a Premium station on 20 December 1995.[4]

Additional shelters were added to the station in October 2015, along with an upgrade of the toilets on Platform 1.[5]

Carrum station is being upgraded as part of the Level Crossing Removal Project.[6]. Station Street level crossing was removed on 17 May 2019 and was followed by station closure in the early hours of 6 July 2019. The station buildings were demolished shortly afterwards. Trains will not stop at Carrum until a new elevated rail line and station is completed in early 2020.[7]
