The Gare d’Estrées-Saint-Denis (Estrées-Saint-Denis station) is a railway station in the commune of Estrées-Saint-Denis, Oise department, France. The station is served by TER Hauts-de-France trains (Amiens - Compiègne line).

History[edit]

Estrées-Saint-Denis was previously a local railway centre, with connections to Clermont-de-l'Oise and to Ormoy-Villers. In 1899, there were 26 passenger trains a day in 5 directions: Compiègne, Verberie, Saint-Just-en-Chaussée, Amiens and Clermont. The station had 80,000 passengers and 90,000 tonnes of goods traffic annually.[1]

The station was also the point of departure for the metre gauge secondary line operated by the Estrées-Saint-Denis - Froissy - Crèvecœur-le-Grand railway company, which linked the three towns via Saint-Just-en-Chaussée. Passenger traffic from Estrées-Saint-Denis on this line ended in 1948.

The station was completely renovated in summer 2008 to simplify the layout of the tracks and to make it accessible to the handicapped.
