Gosford railway station is located on the Main Northern line in New South Wales, Australia. It serves the Central Coast city of Gosford, opening on 15 August 1887.[1]

Between January 1960 and April 1982, Gosford was the northern extremity of the electrified network.[2] The station buildings were demolished and replaced by the current structure which opened on 10 September 1993.[3]

An extensive network of stabling sidings exist north and south of the station. A functioning water crane is located at the northern end of Platform 2 and is used occasionally by passing steam locomotives.

Upgrades[edit]

Work is currently in progress to create a further 58 commuter parking spaces. Work will shortly commence to create a further 26 spaces.[4]
