Christie Downs railway station is located on the Seaford line.[1] Situated in the southern Adelaide suburb of Christie Downs, it is 28.9 kilometres from Adelaide station.

History[edit]

The original Christie Downs station opened on 25 January 1976 when the line was extended from Hallett Cove Beach station. It was approximately 29.7 kilometres from Adelaide station and consisted of a platform adjacent to what is now the Adelaide bound track. The platform has since been demolished, but the footpath leading to it can still be seen. At the same time a new timetable was introduced which had trains stopping at all stations to Brighton, backed up by semi-fast trains that continued to Christie Downs.

In April 1978 the line was extended to Noarlunga Centre. The current Christie Downs station opened in November 1981, with the original Christie Downs station closed and later demolished.
