Minto station is located on the Main South line, serving the Sydney suburb of Minto. It is served by Sydney Trains T8 Airport & South line services.


Minto station opened in May 1874 as Campbellfields, being renamed on 1 March 1882.[2]

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.[3]

Since the second half of 2017, Minto railway station has been served exclusively by the Airport and East Hills line, meaning commuters have to change at Glenfield to travel to either the city via Granville or to Blacktown via the Cumberland Line.[4][5]

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.[7][8] Because there are no facilities for locomotives to change ends of the train, the container trains must have engines at both ends.
