Cleveland railway station is located on the Cleveland line in Queensland, Australia. It serves the suburb of Cleveland in the Redland City.

History[edit]

In 1889, the Cleveland line was extended from Manly to the original Cleveland station.[1][2] In 1897, the line was extended to the second Cleveland station.[3]

Cleveland station opened as the Raby Bay railway station in 1914.[4] On 1 November 1960, the station closed when the line was truncated to Lota.[5] When the station reopened on 24 October 1987, the former Raby Bay station became the third to carry the name Cleveland.[6]

2013 train crash[edit]

On 31 January 2013, a passenger train overshot the railway line and collided with the station, severely damaging a toilet block and railway station and injuring 14 people.[7][8][9] The train was removed from the station in the early hours of the following morning.[10]
