|Distance||13.38 kilometres from Central|
|Platforms||3 (1 island, 1 side)|
|Opened||9 June 1918|
North Strathfield station opened on 9 June 1918 as an island platform with two faces. In 1924, a third platform was added on the western side. It is the first station on the Main Northern line after it branches from the Main Suburban line at Strathfield.
Although the primary, eastern, connection between the Main Northern and Main Suburban lines is from North Strathfield and Strathfield, a secondary, western, connection exists between North Strathfield and Homebush. This connection is mainly used by freight trains but is occasionally used by passenger trains travelling to Olympic Park station during trackwork or for major events at Sydney Olympic Park.
To the east of the station lay a passing loop. This had been taken out of use, but in June 2015 was recommissioned as part of the construction of a dive south of the station as part of the Northern Sydney Freight Corridor project.
