Northbound view in 1987
|Location||Canterbury Street, Casino|
|Operated by||NSW TrainLink|
|Distance||805.07 kilometres from Central|
|Opened||22 September 1930|
Casino station was built to replace existing Casino station that was renamed Old Casino on the same day, having opened on 19 October 1903 when the Murwillumbah line was extended from Lismore, ultimately reaching Grafton in 1905. As Old Casino was on what would now be a branch line, a new mainline station was built to coincide with the extension of the North Coast line from Kyogle to the Queensland border.
The station originally was an island platform. In October 1990, the eastern platform was decommissioned, later being filled in and redeveloped as a coach stop. The Murwillumbah line branches off immediately North of the station, although it has not been used since 2004, the track is still in place and a short distance at Casino is used for occasional shunting movements.
Platforms & services
Casino has one platform with a passing loop. Each day the station is served by a northbound XPT service to Brisbane and a southbound service to Sydney. In addition a daily XPT to/from Sydney terminates at Casino.
