North Fremantle railway station is a railway station on the Transperth network. It is located on the Fremantle line, 16.2 kilometres from Perth, serving the Fremantle suburb of North Fremantle.

History[edit]

The original North Fremantle station on the north side of Tydeman Street opened in 1881.[1] In 1964, a new station halt opened in conjunction with a new Fremantle Railway Bridge with the original site redeveloped as a diesel locomotive depot.[2]

On 28 July 1991 as part of the electrification of the line, a new station opened 800 metres to the north also replacing Leighton station that was a further 700 metres further north.[3][4]

To the west of the station lies a freight line to the closed Leighton Marshalling Yard.

Services[edit]

North Fremantle station is served by Transperth Fremantle line services from Fremantle to Perth that continue through to Midland via the Midland line.[5][6]
