Pomona railway station is located on the North Coast line in Queensland, Australia. It serves the town of Pomona in the Shire of Noosa.

History[edit]

Pomona railway station opened in 1891 with completion of the line from Cooran to Cooroy.[1]

Following withdrawal of staff from the station buildings, Noosa Council in 2000 negotiated the removal of the historic station structures closer to the town center, on the opposite side of the tracks. Today the old station is an art gallery and tourist information center.

The current station consists of one platform with a steel shelter. In 2009, the platform was extended with scaffolding and plywood materials.[2] Initially intended as an interim arrangement until a permanent extension was built, the temporary platform remains.[3] Opposite the platform lies a passing loop, used for one train to overtake another, or for when two trains traveling in opposite directions pass each other.

The temporary platform was washed away, and had to be rebuilt, following flooding in 2012. The temporary platform remains in a flood-prone location. However, it is due to be replaced with a permanent platform in late 2017. Brisbane-Gympie North train services operate twice a day from the Pomona railway station.

Services[edit]

Pomona is serviced by two daily City network services in each direction.[4]
