Grange railway station is the terminus station of the Grange line.[1] Situated in the western Adelaide suburb of Grange, it is 13 kilometres from Adelaide station.

History[edit]

On 9 March 1986, the current Grange station, on the eastern side of Military Road replaced the previous station on the western side of Military Road. The station was relocated to prevent traffic flow along Military Road from being interrupted by the arrival of trains. This platform still remains intact. The first platform of the three platforms (1882) was to the north east of the current platform in Terminus Street. There are no visible remains.
