Daglish railway station is a railway station on the Transperth network. It is located on the Fremantle line, five kilometres from Perth station serving the suburbs of Daglish and Subiaco.

History[edit]

Daglish station opened on 14 July 1924, named after Henry Daglish, Western Australia's first Australian Labor Party State Premier, predating the suburb of the same name. During planning and construction it was called Lawler Street station, but Daglish was its official name at the time of opening. Railway lands originally reserved for a goods depot were released in a residential subdivision in 1925, following the establishment of the goods yard at East Perth. A pedestrian bridge was built in 1936.[1][2][3][4][5][6][7]

The station closed on 1 September 1979 along with the rest of the Fremantle line, re-opening on 29 July 1983 when services were restored.[8]

In May 2007 a single ended turnback siding was opened between the mainline tracks at the Fremantle end of the station, permitting the reversal of six-car trains moving special event crowds to and from Subiaco Oval.[9]

Services[edit]

Daglish station is served by Transperth Fremantle line services from Fremantle to Perth that continue through to Midland via the Midland line.[10][11]
