'Casula railway station is located on the Main South line, serving the Sydney suburb of Casula. It is served by Sydney Trains T2 South and T5 Cumberland line services.

History[edit]

Casula station opened on 1 November 1894.[1] Due to its low patronage, Casula is unattended by staff and there was previously no ticket vending machines (due to vandalism). As of July 2009, a ticket machine has been installed at the station. In October 1993, a footbridge was installed.[2]

As part of the construction of the Southern Sydney Freight Line, which opened to the east of the station in January 2013, Casula received an easy access upgrade with lifts to the platforms and the existing footbridge extended.[3] The level crossing was replaced in September 2012 with a new road constructed from the north.[4]

The Casula Powerhouse arts centre is located adjacent to the station's eastern side.[5]
