Emerson railway station is located on the Seaford and Tonsley lines.[1] Situated in the inner south-western Adelaide suburb of Black Forest, it is 7.1 kilometres from Adelaide station.

In July 2008 Emerson station became the first station to install a Caution More than One Train (CMToT) warning device. The device activates when there are two trains in the vicinity by sounding an alarm and lighting up the warning message where people cross at the pedestrian maze. The installation of the CMToT warning device was as a result of incidents and many near misses where pedestrians were walking behind one train and not being alert to a second train coming from the other direction.[2]
