Granville railway station is located on the Main Suburban line, serving the Sydney suburb of Granville. It is served by Sydney Trains T1 Western Line and T2 Inner West & South Line services and NSW TrainLink Blue Mountains Line services. It is the junction for the Main Western line and the Main South line. It has traditionally served as a transfer station, a role that has been diluted since the opening of the Cumberland line in 1996.
Granville station opened on 2 July 1860 as Parramatta Junction, and is close to the original terminus of the first railway line in New South Wales which was completed in 1855. On 1 September 1880 it was relocated to its present location and renamed Granville.
Granville Junction lies immediately to the west of the station and is the junction point of the Main Western and the original Main South lines, now referred to as the Old Main South after the opening of the Lidcombe to Cabramatta bypass.
