Lewisham railway station is located on the Main Suburban line, serving the Sydney suburb of Lewisham. It is served by Sydney Trains T2 Inner West & South line services.

History[edit]

Lewisham station opened in 1886.[1] The Main Suburban line through Lewisham was quadruplicated in 1892,[2] and sextuplicated in 1927 in association with electrification works.[3]

As part of the 1892 work, the northern side platform was converted to an island platform and a new platform constructed on the most northern line. The former was trimmed back to a single platform, and the latter demolished as part of the 1927 works. In September 1990, Lewisham closed for three months as the first station that CityRail upgraded.[4]
