Moreland railway station is located on the Upfield line, in Victoria, Australia. It serves the northern Melbourne suburb of Coburg, and opened on 9 September 1884.[1]

A footbridge is located at the Down end of the station, whilst a disused signal box is located at the Up end of Platform 2.

The station was badly damaged by fire on 2 May 1975.[2]

Manually controlled boom barriers replaced interlocked gates at the Moreland Road level crossing in 1986.[3]

In August 1988, former sidings "A", "B" and "C" and associated point work were abolished.[4] Also abolished were the Up and Down end crossovers, and a number of disc signals.[4]
