History[edit]

Minto station opened in May 1874 as Campbellfields, being renamed on 1 March 1882.[1]

The Southern Sydney Freight Line passes by the western side of the station. As part of its construction work, Minto received an upgrade with lifts to the platforms.[2]

Freight[edit]

Since 2013, long distance freight trains have had their own separate track, the Southern Sydney Freight Line.

An Inland port is located south of Minto station. It consists of a crossover and a siding.[6][7] Because there are no facilities for locomotives to change ends of the train, the container trains must have engines at both ends.
